Indeed, quad architecture is my biggest concern. Given the constraints
on Ronald's time, which I understand, I've found bundlebuilder to be the
best solution for my apps.
I've done a bit more digging into the other alternatives. bbfreeze seems
to be an an alpha state at the moment--as Chris said, it appears the
developer of that tool is looking for a Mac developer to help and hasn't
found that yet. pyinstaller seems to be farther along, it can actually
produce Mac bundles, but it doesn't yet (AFAIK) produce universal
binaries. It also seems to have some weird bugs with window focus and
launching new instances of Python with a generic icon--at least, this
has been reported on their mailing list WRT wxPython apps. So it doesn't
seem ready for prime time yet either.
