Reviewers

This adds an installer for RBTools on MacOS X, which bundles the command
line utilities and the modules for both Python 2.6 and 2.7, both of
which are standard on modern versions of MacOS X.

The installer is built with the build-mpkg.sh script, which will
generate the appropriate builds for Python 2.6 and 2.7 versions, and
assemble all the pieces into a standard .pkg file that can be
distributed.

Currently, attempting to install this package will result in a complaint
about it not being signed, making it difficult and scary to install.
This will be fixed when we have the ability to sign the package, which
will happen prior to the package's official release.

Built an installer and tested it in a VM. Successfully installed a build
of RBTools, and had access to the Python modules from both Python 2.6 and 2.7.

I was able to build this inside and outside of a virtualenv, without any path
distortion.

  2. Just curious, does this framework work with .png?

    1. In theory yes. In practice, not so well.

      Turns out that it really wants a tiff, for Retina usage. It's layered, so there's a tiff for non-Retina, and a tiff for Retina. These get combined into a single tiff that the installer can use for either.

      The installer will not look for a @2x PNG.

      If you do try to use PNGs, the installer, on some versions of OSX, will do some odd stretchy things to it.
