An unofficial Mac binary is available from here:
<http://www.astro.washington.edu/users/rowen/python/>

Known issues:
- This may break existing installations of pytz and python-dateutil 
(especially if those were installed by the matplotlib 1.2.1 Mac binary 
installer). For safety, reinstall those after installing matplotlib.
- Like the Windows binaries, it does not include pytz, python-dateutil, 
six or pyparsing. You will have to install those manually (e.g. with pip 
or easy_install).
- Much of the test code is missing, for unknown reasons. Thus I was not 
able to run most of its unit tests.

So...use at your own risk. At this point I have no idea if or when there 
will be an official Mac binary installer. I'm afraid I don't have time 
to track down the issues right now.
