Diesel Dave's super secret small python recipe:
	Do not compile debug info (remove -g)
	Compile -static to eliminate any library requirments
	'strip' the binary
	Use UPX executable compressor (search sourceforge)

This will get you ~350K self contained python. Move .pyc modules as
needed. You're on your own for .so modules. (Maybe they can be compiled in

If you need less then this you have your work cut out for you
and will have many compatibility hurdles to deal with.
