IMHO running the script shouldn't be the default action for .py files,
ever. I have two reason's for that: (1) most .py files I run into are
just source code instead of scripts and shouldn't be executed but
opened in an editor, and (2) this makes it way to easy to accidently
execute a random python script that you've downloaded from the internet.
I'm seriously wondering if having "Python Launcher.app" is a good
idea, and if we shouldn't scrap it entirely. If building full app
bundles using py2app is too much of a burden we could look into
providing an easier and more lightweight way to build such bundles.
The fully standalone bundles that py2app creates are very useful, but
I definitely see the need for very thin .app bundles as well.
