Your current 2.6.1 is the version installed by OS X itself, which is used
by the OS for some applications. It's better to not modify anything about
it. Installing a new Python from python.org won't interfere with your
system Python, and is as standard as it gets. The
numpy/scipy/matplotlib/... binary installers all work only with the Python
from python.org.
