This is a symlink, which I really don't want EPD to touch.

I guess I'm OK with using 7.0 in Python.framework, on the assumption 
that Python will never make it to 7.0, but really, it should be in 
EPD.framework, no?

Yes, but what about installs of "normal python"? Why has EPD stomped on 
my /Current without even asking me?!

Which path? Aside from stomping on the /Current symlink, I'm curious 
about why EPD now appears to be the default python on my system...



PS: Thanks for pointing me at the DocLinks and Examples folders :-)
