Greetings list,

> Suppose you distribute a .py script to a million people. Your script is
faulty due to a bug in the Python interpreter or std lib. But you don't
need to do anything to patch your script: you just tell people to
upgrade to the latest version of Python where the bug is fixed. Or you
say nothing at all, and when the user's get their mandatory OS-supported
upgrade, including Python, it fixes itself.

From experience it's not the only source of bug.
I normally package apps with 3rd party libraries. Libs also can contain
bugs. Then along the same line i can tell people to upgrade the lib to
the desired version. This is true.

However it boils down to whether people want executables or not. The purpose 
many libs exist shows that there is a need for generating native executables
It's up to the developer i guess, how much Python-aware he wants the target
environment to be, considering that he has the ability to tune.

Kind Regards,
