I've not tried this yet, but what about using the checking stuff from
Gordon McMillan's Installer. The only problems that I've been getting
using it are reasonably unusual. In particular it has problems with

package\_init__.py contains
from bingo import BINGO

as it when it sees 'from package import BINGO' it doesn't know to look
in bingo.py 

Gordon's compressed import packages are really neat and I hacked the c
stuff to clean up more aggressively so users don't see any dlls lying
about after use.
