In a rather unceremonious way - Apple has removed Python support (at least from the SDK) in 10.9.
Python IS still installed on the system in...
but trying to link to it under the 10.9 SDK fails. Even with the "CLI Tools" installed, there is no Python in...
I'm no Pythonista... but I do find it interesting that Apple has removed a part of the Developer Toolchain that has been around for so long, and was once so promising (on the Mac platform). Apple often tries to steer the focus towards certain "methodologies"; but historically, when the plug has been pulled - it's over - at least in Apple's eye.
Is this a statement by Apple, along the lines "People aren't using Python very much anymore.. we're gonna phase out support"?
Or simply, "Adoption of PyObjC is anemic, maybe we can reduce the size of the SDK by 3.1Mb"?
Whatever the motivation, it's likely a change that is here to stay. Are there suggestions on workarounds to maintain compile and runtime-compatibility, or insights into why the decision was made?
