Single-file binaries are indeed important. (Though in most cases they don't
have to be totally stand-alone -- they can depend on a system python and
its stdlib. At least in typical datacenter setups.) Have people looked at
PEX (a format developed by Twitter) or Pants (which seems to be an
open-source tool that can build PEX files)?

Łukasz has told me that at Facebook they have a similar system that they
are now using to deploy Python 3 binaries.
