[IPython-dev] standalone ipython exe (py2exe)

I started up a little experimental setup script, "exesetup.py". With
py2exe, it can be used ts create standalone ipython executables that
don't require python, pyreadline or anything else installed. It kinda
sorta seems to work, but please try it out.

I created this because I myself need ipython I can put on an mmc card
(for shell use - it pains me to use cmd.exe these days).

What needs to be done is to read ipy_user_conf.py and profiles from
the ipython.exe directory, instead of creating a new dir under HOME.

And yes, this is a bit like Movable Python, but only focuses on
ipython, only aims at doing the "trivial" thing and is under BSD
