Erm, any new development will unfortunately cause new issues. That's why
these developments are done in parallel with the current implementation.

Well, since I don't have OS X here, any help on testing the new api is
very welcome. Feel free to build blender using --enable-exppython and
test some of the existing modules. If there are issues, I would like to
know of course ;)

Understand though, that not all modules are implemented yet. Check
/source/blender/python/api2_2x to see which modules are implemented, or
at least partly :)

With regards,
