TigerPython23Compat just lets you use Python packages built for MacOS X 10.3 
with Tiger. I don't think it is necessary for Intel MacOS X.

If you are using PPC Tiger, download and install:

That PPC MacOS 10.3 wxPython2.6-osx-unicode- package will probably 
fail on Intel Macs.

Not sure where to find the Intel wxPython2.6 package, as earlier versions of 
wxPython are not listed on:

On Intel MacOS X,  apart from X11, I don't think it is necessary to install 
any of the dependencies listed on:
the wxPython that comes with Intel MacOS X seems to work.
