Protecting Python Application Distributions - URGENT

Hi;

I have the possible chance to do a consulting project in Python, but
the customer has raised concerns about (not) doing a source
distribution.

I've read some stuff about python->C etc. but I haven't been able to
find any concrete information.

Any information about creating "exe" or "shrouded" or some other form
of protected distribution on Windows would be greatly appreciated. (I
realize that 100% protection is impossible given sufficient
motivation; I'd just like to make it irritating enough that most
people wouldn't bother trying to decompile/reconstruct the code.)

Cross-emails to whisper at oz.net greatly appreciated!

Regards,

Dave LeBlanc

P.S. Any solution that created stand-alone .exe files (no separate
python.exe needed) would be of special interest.
