Thanks Rob,  I found W as part ot the MacPython distribution.

Still no joy - there seems to be some incompatibility between the Carbon 
libs I have
and those used by W. Also I do not have 'waste'.

I think my difficulties stem from my utter lack of understanding of the 
relation between mac-python, macho-python,  python-python.

Maybe the Chaco developer's page could describe the python installation 
for OSX that is being used for their testing.
