Actually, you should probably get the [universal python][1], instead of 
the one from Fink.  It is most up-to-date, most optimized, and has the 
most testing of external packages, etc. (several of which are available 
from that same page).  If you do get it, then AFAIK there is no reason 
to use pythonw, as it is a symlink to python.
