Thanks a lot for this.   I've just posted OSX wheels for Pythons 2.7, 3.3, 3.4.

It's a strange feeling doing this:

$ pip install numpy
Downloading/unpacking numpy
  Downloading numpy-1.8.1-cp27-none-macosx_10_6_intel.whl (3.6MB):
3.6MB downloaded
Installing collected packages: numpy
Successfully installed numpy
Cleaning up...

5 seconds waiting on a home internet connection and a numpy install....  Nice.

Cheers,

Matthew
