There must (?) a good solution to this, but I don't know it.

I presume Java doesn't do this?  If so, since you'll have to install
Python on the clients anyway, you may as well install Java as well, and
run Jython instead, if that works around the problem.  When you figure
out how to get CPython to stick around, it should be easy to move back

You may even be able to avoid any need to manually install things on the
client side, if the version of Java installed is good enough to let
Jython work.
