I think the point about Squisher is that you don't have to
install it. You can either import it or run it directly. I'm mostly
interested in it as a way to package a script with a few Python
and C modules, dump it in the field, and run "python myscript.pyc"
to execute it, with no need for anything but the base Python to be
installed on the remote site, and just one file to copy.
