[Python-Dev] Plea: can modulefinder.py move to the library?

Is there any reason not to move freeze's modulefinder.py to the library? It's a
very useful module, and it's a shame it's not available in non-source
distributions. It seems odd that utilities that use it (like py2exe) must ship
it themselves, since some otherwise work perfectly with a binary distribution.
I'm currently working on a py2exe-like tool for MacOSX and it would've been nice
if I could have just done "import modulefinder"...
