wxPython breaks on new OS X Snow Leopard

OS X Snow Leopard now includes Python 2.6.1 in 64bit mode by default on all Macs.
The Mac OS X Binaries for wxPython do not include 64bit compilations resulting in the following error when trying to run any Python program that uses wxPython on OS X Snow Leopard:
ImportError: /usr/local/lib/wxPython-unicode-126.96.36.199/lib/python2.6/site-packages/wx-2.8-mac-unicode/wx/_core_.so: no appropriate 64-bit architecture
While a stop gap measure is to try and force the system Python to run into 32bit mode this is not default setting and this error will be obvious on every default installation of OS X Snow Leopard as the OS.
