I should have been clearer. The binary installer at python.org won't  
work on 10.3 (or rather there are issues and you shouldn't use it on  
10.3). I have fixed a number of those issues in the trunk, if you  
rebuild the installer using a current checkout of the python trunk  
you should end up with something that does work properly on 10.3.
