Py2app will never be able to do everything, but I'd prefer to get closer than we're currently. Are there things you have to do every time that could (easily) be expressed as configuration for py2app? It seems that python is slowly moving towards a more declarative way of specifying builds using a setup.cfg file instead of setup.py though the distutils2/packaging project and py2app should do the same when that happens (without dropping support for setup.py files of course).
