I have added new features to Gordons installer package and did send him
the code to include in his distribution.
He has not yet made them available, so I uploaded them to my starship page.

The executables are compiled with the cleanup flag, so they may´be what
you need. Also included is a VC6.0 workspace so you can play with the flags.

You may also be interested in my improvements: It is now possible
to build executables which only need python15.dll, zlib.pyd and
Everything else is contained in the exe file and never needs to be unpacked.
