[Baypiggies] py2exe. Python(x,y). Distribution issues.

This whole wider issue of building with multiple package interdependencies across
multiple platforms and Python versions is getting to be a headache, touched on
it when discussing the Enthought distribution at April meeting.
(Yes I know your case was with py2exe.)
Another recently-launched free distribution is "Python(x,y)":
Python 2.5 + Qt + MinGW + Eclipse + C++/Fortran + scientific libraries + 2D/3D plotting:
(currently downloadable for Windows 2003/XP/Vista; other platforms coming.)
If we're talking about SCons, can we also talk about these things?
Some people commented to me on the status of distutils and eggs.
It's worse when you have multiple "foreign" dependencies to various non-Python packages.
