The MacOS Python pages <> actually
have fairly detailed download instructions and binary installers, so
as long as the link is included in the documentation, it doesn't seem
unreasonable to expect users to install this manually.

This is a tempting solution, as making convert-ly work with Python 2.3
again will take 1 hour of precious time and we won't do this for
lilypond-book anyway.

I looked at these pages and if I were faced with
downloading python I wouldn't know where to start.
Maybe that's because I'm totally unfamiliar with
Macs, though.

Shall I go ahead with this (in lilypond-book and convert-ly)?  We
provide Python with all other binaries, so I think this error message is

Maybe the view of Mac users should prevail.  As
I'm not one, I'll withdraw.
