Instead of adding pyInstaller, why not link with libpython as in the embedding section of the documentation? -- H

The only thing i don't trust Mr Chris on is packaging. His technical Py views
are sound and great. I have the impression that concerning packaging the view 
is: we can do with what we have, no need to add more. When enhancing Zipapps
was proposed, if i remember correctly, the view was along the lines of: "Why Zipapp
when you can double click on a Py file". Now concerning native executables, the view
runs along the lines of "at least consider Zipapps".

I have the impression that everybody talking about native executables here
were talking about an optional way of packaging apps which help people and
not as the preferred, standard and de facto way.
