"hackishness" of prefix-approach is a matter of open discussion I would
say. I must admit that I used to prefix-based way (and it is extensively
used in many POSIX OSes packaging systems) but I agree that for Mac OS X
framework thingy is more proper.

I would go for the second option (with installer) - but again, it's just
me. This would be less confusing, easier and probably safer for packager
himself :) . At the end what's the goal? Basically - to provide usable
and nice enough instance of Stackless for Mac OS x? If so this would do.
