Everyone seems to like the first half of this simple PEP adding the
extensions. The 3-letter extension for windowed apps can be "pzw"
while the "pyz" extension for console apps stays the same.

The second half, the tool
https://bitbucket.org/dholth/pyzaa/src/tip/pyzaa.py?at=default is less
mature, but there's not a whole lot to do in a simple tool that may
serve more as an example: you can open any file with ZipFile in append
mode, even one that is not a zip file and just contains the #!python
shebang line.
