Just to perhaps clarify one thing - the use of the python.org Python
is only an installation issue for the development machine. py2app
will include the relevant portions of the python.org framework within
your application bundle, so it's not a requirement for any of your
users. They'll still just see a single standalone application, which
just happens to have no dependencies on their system's python.
This can simplify things somewhat on the development machine too, since
you can use the python.org python installation (independent from the OS
version) on that machine for installing other third-party packages you
may need, again without affecting the system python. Those packages
also get included in the final app bundle by py2app.
