The only reason we ever switched to frameworks with python25 was to get
pythonw running. Otherwise that was only causing lots of troubles with
the paths as dependents were not using the correct way to determine
installation directories.

Frameworks ought to be _relocatable_ and that is one of the main purpose
of them. But we are not able to provide this with MacPorts. So it's not
a reason to stick to a framework just because we are on a Mac.
