uses Python 2.3, but Leopard has Python 2.5 by default. Packages
aren't shared between the two versions on Leopard, so that may be why
they aren't loading. You could add some code to your .vimrc that adds
the 2.5 package paths to your PYTHONPATH, but you might find that not
everything works as expected due to the version mismatch.
Another option would be to build MacVim against Python 2.5 in Leopard,
but this currently requires some hacking of the autoconf files to get
things to link correctly.
