Careful with Universal builds. I installed a Universal Python2.4 on my PPC 
laptop and subsequently couldn't compile any extension modules with distutils 
as it got confused and thought it was on an x86 platform or something :)

Note that I have successfully installed universal builds of extensions. It's 
just the interpreter universal build that didn't work.
