Impossible as far as I know. There are no working binary releases for 
intel macs and the 2.3 branch doesn't compile as is. :-(

However, what Ned was really asking was that you set the appropriate 
trove classifiers on the pypi page:


Contrast this (apologies) with the mock page which lists the python 
version in the classifiers:


You're welcome to steal the (trivially simple) code from the mock 
setup.py which sets the classifiers automatically when you upload a new 
release. (Using `setup.py sdist upload`.)

All the best,

May you find forgiveness for yourself and forgive others
May you share freely, never taking more than you give.
