Thanks for the advice.  I'm looking into the build systems for kodos (looks 
like they use py2exe) and orange (which deploys as a windows installer, an OS 
X bundle, a fink archive, ...)  I'm also going ahead and asking on the PyQt 
list.  I'll post again here when and if I have a working build system.

Thanks again,
