[Chicago] Python for XP?

So I'm having this itch that I think I could scratch with some help
from our favorite snake, but it involves Windows, about which I strive
to know as little as necessary <grin>. What I'd like to do is be able
to run a program I'd write in Python on an XP machine; the program and
whatever support it needs not to require installation, but neither do I
need (nor particularly desire) the all-in-one bundle that I understand
py2exe is all about. Think of this as running from a flash drive -
plenty of space for a tree of stuff, but it needs to run from that
So far everything I'm finding seems to reauire the usual Windows
install that wires choice bits into the syste, or at least the
registry. I guess it would be acceptable if running this left some
cruft behind in the registry - it's 90% cruft anyhow, yes? - but it
would be better if that weren't necessary.
If you're not laughing yet, for a truly ideal solution I'd like
something I can setup on that flash drive without needing Windows. :-)
Thanks, and try not to hurt yourselves rolling around on the floor like
Some people hack for fun, some because they want things their way;
some don't because they can't, and some because they can't be bothered.
Some can make anything work, some could but would rather not,
and some would misconfigure a bowling ball. -- unknown
