As an aside, I wonder if there's interest in collaborating on freeze
tools among the various existing solutions here. I've recently needed
to look at this and I chose cx_Freeze, primarily because it supported
the platforms I needed. It's a very good tool.
I've had some conversations with Anthony Tuininga on the cx_Freeze
mailing list and there seems to be some interest in perhaps putting
together a SIG or something.
