MacPorts had recently changed something to python. Now main parts are installed in the application bundle in Contents/Library. Just take a lokk at yout Leopard/Intel build and my version...

Ah CRAP. On my computer it's still at the same place :/ I'll test again when I have my new intel/Leopard computer, currently I couldn't do the changes as there's no way I can test them

About ClearLooks : I could test it again on my computer, I was getting crashes. But I personnaly am much more interested into bringing a native version, so I try to spend my free time working on the native GTK one, not the X11 one ;) This is a possibility, I'll see in my free time (if i have free time, i'm booked over the head). But then again, ClearLooks is no vital component. It does look a bit nicer than the current theme we're bundling, but out current theme is nice enough and quite usable so I wouldn't consider this high-priority. I'm not saying I won't check that, but to sum it all shortly "I prefer stability over eye-candy. Maybe the bug was fixed but I have no time to verify atm" ;)

There's always the fact that ClearLooks might have issues in PowerPC, or Tiger. It's good to have a PowerPC computer for purposes of making compatibility. However, is there no way we can create a universal binary?

We could create a universal binary, but it would be more difficult than the current separate builds so we never bothered

It's very possible that ClearkLooks has some endianness issue that makes it only crash on PPC computers indeed, or that it triggers a bug in Tiger's X11
