The code that it's having problems with in your traceback below is
PSP/Properties.py. However, I don't see anything wrong with the file, and I
am able to run it through Python with no errors:
I'm using Py 2.0, but I don't see any 2.0 specific features in
PSP/Properties.py. However, now that I check, I do see them in install.py.
I'll remove them today.
What ver of Python are you using? What platform?
Perhaps an end-of-line problem? Are you using CVS on the same
platform/machine you are running Python?
