I've generally stayed away form fink, as it felt like kind of a separate 
system within OS-X, rather than integrated -- kind of like cygwin.

In particular, if you use Fink Python, can you:

1) Write apps that use the native GUI (not X), in particular, PyObjC, 
wx-Mac, and TK-aqua.

2) Bundle up apps with Py2App, or otherwise create self contained 
application bundles?

3) Universal (PPC+Intel) anything.

Apart from "feel", I think those are the concrete reasons to use 
MacPython, rather than fink. Please correct me if I'm got a wrong (or 
outdated) impression.
