I still think it would be useful to have some kind of basic installer-creating functionality in the stdlib. Not bundling Python could be the default, or even the only option if you're that concerned about it.
I'm not sure about an installer. To me that means integrating with system "installed apps" mechanisms. But I *would* support building an "unzip and run" style of distribution.
Once you have a native executable, a whole range of platform-specific installers is available to you. I don't think we need to invent anything new in this space.
