Ah, I see. That *is* a big deal to many Python users, which want to
distribute pythonxy.dll as part of their application, in a single file
(e.g. py2exe), and then don't want to worry about shipping another zip
file along with their single-file executable (plus including a third
file explaining why you need to do this).
