I don't use Homebrew, for this.
1) It's _not_ supported upstream (no Python modules allowed)
2) It would use the X11 server, rather than the native Quartz
3) You would still need Xcode and compile GTK+ etc from source
I did have my own fork of Homebrew, and it worked just fine...
It would be possible to use Python, Quartz and "bottles" even
with Homebrew, but in the end* it just wasn't worth the effort ?
So that's why I did my own build system and binary packages. :-P
