Most of the documentation for "setup.py" assumes you're packaging a
library module. (Ref: "http://docs.python.org/distutils/setupscript.html")
How do you properly package an application? What happens
on "setup.py install"? Where does the application get installed? Where does
the main program go?
If I package and build my app, it packages properly, and
unpacks and builds into
which is appropriate for a library, but not an application.
Here's the setup file.
