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.
