A solution is to ship a full python 2.5 framework inside blender bundle.

problem it is rather big.

Or give the link to the correct package on blender download

and let user instal in /lib/framework. But then you cannot anymore  
put blender on an usb key

and run it anywhere.

i would rather not ship a limited package (as on window), which could  
lead to site path problems

on Os X.

Also blender on Os X is install less, and i would rather keep it that  

Now the real question, is what gives py2.4 or py2.5 that is so  
mandatory ?

Tony quizz about the utility on the module in aforementioned should  
be answered too.
