Hi Tim,

The good news is I tried to create this today.  The bad news is that I 
failed to get a distribution that passes all the self-tests.  It's late 
and Monday is booked so it's looking like COB Tuesday is the earliest a 
release will come from me.

If my understanding of the way py2exe works is correct (sucks up 
installed code for inclusion in distro),  you might consider rolling 
your own by starting with a 1.3.3 installation,  adding the 
__init__.py from the head of CVS,  and updating generate.py with the new 
version numbers.  

Sorry this is dragging out but it *will* be resolved in the next week,  
possibly by 1.4.0.
