Things look mainly so far here (Mac OS 10.6).

One thing: what is the situation with the 64 bit Mac binaries? 
Currently, you still have to grab these separately (they are not 
included in the standard MacTeX). Any plans to integrate them (I guess 
next year at best)? What about updates: does tlgmr "pick up" the 
presence of the binaries and do them as part of the usual run, or if not 
how do you update them?

Another point. Doing an update raises an error with building formats:

! I can't find file `ukrhyph-ptex.tex'.

l.370   \repeat

Not a problem, but might worry some people.
