The range of people who (a) cannot install from PyPI and can only use the stdlib, and (b) cannot deploy with a .pyz and must deploy an .exe, is extremely narrow. In what situation do you have to make a native executable but cannot get a tool from PyPI to make one?
Well, for my personal example, an in house tool for an in house task, the users _can_ copy a Mac .app into their Applications folder. I _do not_ and would not expect them to (likely choice): - install macports or homebrew - install python - install source code and libraries (needed PyQt)
They're end users; some are (variously) technical and some aren't, but none should need to be technical. I want them to copy an app to a new machine and be happy - drag'n'drop a single thing.
