[Pythonmac-SIG] pyObjC and Plugins

Hi Dethe,

I attempted it again and unfortunately got the same error.

I actually decided to do a fresh 10.4.8 install, did Xcode, Python 2.5
and setuptools 0.6c5. I installed PyObjC 1.4 from source (the stable
download off the website), and told it to skip installing py2app. I then
used easy_setup to install py2app==dev, which this time took care of all
the dependencies, though I think it didn't take those from dev. Did
"python setup.py py2app" to the example, copied the result out of dist/
to ~/Library/PreferencePanes, clicked on it and it died with:

instantiatePrefPaneObject] (/Users/steve/Library/PreferencePanes/Shell
Environment.prefPane): principalClass is nil.

If you have any further ideas, I'd love to hear 'em.
