As I tried to point out, just adding the decimal package to our windows
distribution does NOT fix the problem for OSX.

They are definitely useful scripts and worth keeping.  What they need

the lines of "You CANNOT run this script because ..."  As is, about
all you get is the usual inscrutable error traceback.

Or at least get them to send us some free hardware to buy our silence!
