[Libreoffice] Python LibO bootstrapping on Mac

Just a quick question :

Say I want to develop a python module that bootstraps LibO on Mac from
outside the LibO application - will this work on OSX 10.6 bearing in
mind that the Apple supplied version is Python 2.6 and mac ports is
offering version 2.7 ?

I saw that Christian proposed some patches that enabled this possibility
with respect to the OOo source code


but it appears they never got integrated. Any idea whether they are in
the LibO tree ? If they are, which bit version of python needs to be
invoked, 32bit or 64bit ? I guess 32bit ? Is there a variable for this ?
I'm starting to see people develop / want to develop python solutions to
run OOo/LibO, but I'm a bit confused as to what is actually possible,
and on which platforms / OSes.
