BTW, the official 2.7.1 OS X installers are now available:


With Python 2.7, there are two Mac OS X installer variants available for 
download: the "traditional" 32-bit-only (Intel and PPC) version that 
installs and runs on all versions of OS X from 10.3.9 through current 
10.6.x; and a new 64-bit/32-bit (Intel only) variant.  As discussed in 
http://bugs.python.org/issue9227, there were problems using Tkinter and 
IDLE with the original 2.7 64/32 installer.  The problem is that the 
only supported non-X11 64-bit Tcl/Tk at the moment is the one supplied 
by Apple in 10.6 and the installer tried unsuccessfully to support both 
10.5 and 10.6.  For 2.7.1, the 64/32 installer now only supports 10.6.x 
and will only use the Apple-supplied Tcl/Tk 8.5.  The 32-bit-only 
installer is still built to link with either an Active/State Tcl/Tk 8.4, 
if installed in /Library/Frameworks, or fallback to the Apple-supplied 
Tcl/Tk 8.4 in OS X 10.4 through 10.6.

The official 3.1.3 installer is also now available:


As with previous 3.1.x installers, it is a "traditional" 32-bit-only 
installer (Intel/PPC, 10.3.9 -> 10.6, Tcl/Tk 8.4, etc).
