You'll have to reinstall at least part of Leopard, Python is used by the system (earlier versions used Python in the PDF workflow, on OSX 10.5 server some components are written in Python, ...).
As a general rule you should never replace components of the OS in the /System tree (and likewise for the unixy bits in /usr), that part of the system is "owned" by Apple and does not contain user-serviceable parts.

Yes, the AppKit and other bits are not part of the normal Python distribution, but are addons.
