I think so.

What is in it? I asked about it before updating to TexLive-2007 (they 
appeared simultaneously, at least to me).

Then, a question arises: it should be possible one to use the MacTeX-2007.tar.gz 
(multipackage install package), at some point, regardless of existing 
instalations of MacTex_additions, gwTeX, TeXLive, etc. on a machine. 
There should be some instructions if some preliminary (un)installations are 
needed and how to be done. i-Installer does great job in such aspects.
