I look at the 0.1 distro and examples and it really looks promising. 
However, I did have two questions before I dive into trying to get my 
app bundled:
- Do you have any hints or gotchas for distributing Tkinter apps and 
have Tcl/Tk bundled inside. I want the target MacOS X 10.3 user to be 
able to run my app without installing anything.
- As an extension to that question...any hints on installing tcl 
extensions ("snack", specifically) into such a bundled app?
