I performed a fresh install of OS X 10.6 and tried to use mozboot and it failed hard. It appears optparse doesn't accept unicode strings as argument names. Additionally, I got an error importing bootstrap.py.

This is chuck full of fail. Hopefully I'll have a patch up soon...
Necessary evil makes me feel dirty.

Realistically, I think supporting python 2.6, 2.7, and 3.x is HARD for software of any size.  Personally, I would concentrate on 2.6 and 2.7 until we require 2.7.  Supporing 2.7 and 3.x is much more reasonable.

Python 2.6.1 compatibility, v1

+        """Implementation of subprocess.check_output for Pythons missing is."""

Typo?

other than that, wfm
