Switch to Python

For those that don't read AMK's diary, here is a little bit of information from Guido -Mac OSX 10.3 is going to ship with Python 2.3

Blimey. Now all they need to do is drop the price by about 33% and maybe I'll think about buying one.

Now *this* is cool. Now that the Mac is built in top of BSD (I think), and is therefore a *proper* hacker's computer, I want one. Python shipped as standard - even better.

Python might will find itself being the de-facto standard Mac scripting language.

Highly unlikely that Python will supplant the existing mac scripting engine, but it's cool nonetheless to see such support from the OS!
