Support multiple Python versions/distributions

Reported by Christopher Stawarz | April 21st, 2010 @ 12:51 PM | in 0.4.5 (closed)

We should distribute compiled binaries of the MWorks Python modules for multiple Python versions and distributions. Minimally, we should support the system default python (2.6 for Snow Leopard, 2.5 for Leopard) and a recent EPD.

When building the modules, we'll need to iterate over the different Python lib dirs. The installer can include binaries for all distros but only install for the distros it finds on the machine.

    As of mw_core commit 2809cb96d13275cdbb12b8b399ecf02e727be430 and mw_datatools commit cbd11cca014b7975b12b529ece64fd3c874f7fd7, the MWorks Python modules, which are compiled against the system Python 2.6, can be used with other Python 2.6 installations (e.g. EPD 6.2). I'm going to call this "good enough" and close this ticket. However, if we ever want to support multiple Python point releases (e.g. 2.6 and 2.7), then we'll need to provide separate binaries for each, since binary compatibility isn't guaranteed.
