[Pythonmac-SIG] Welcome Leopard

If you can hold out for a few more days, I'm working on MatPlotLib  
integration with Leopard's Python 2.5.1

We use it for our data analysis software; one of my jobs is  
maintaining our Mac Intel implementation.

I had had a pre-release of Leopard for quite some time, but alas we  
shipped an important internal milestone for our software just two  
weeks ago. It's been non-stop for me, and I haven't made much time to  
really look carefully at Python/MatPlotLib/SciPy and Leopard. But  
I've been working on it for about a week now.

I could make an installer package of the matplotlib bits that will  
work with Leopard Python.

I expect next Wednesday for matplotlib. Unless someone beats me to it.
