But, I'm glad to see you write the PEP. I have an even thinner method of
doing this, using .py extensions, that I've been using for several years
now with Python 3, and wondered why it wasn't more popular.
My equivalent of pyzaa, though, only performs the pack operation, and
requires a bit of cooperation from the application (as a convenient way
of storing the application-specific parameters, I build the invocation
of pyzaa-equivalent into the application itself using a non-documented
command-line option, and build to a different directory, to avoid
