Anything's possible, but it's a lot of work, probably work you don't
really want to do.
Most of the freely-available packages are creatures whose
redistribution is allowed. That means you could include the library in
your app's package, and install it as part of the install. Or don't
install it -- just build a little place for it in your app's
installation and import it from there. PIL in particular is very
accomodating about this; I've seen it used both globally installed and
within a local source tree and it functions either way.
