This would be a VERY GOOD THING. All the PYDs and DLLs and so on in ONE 
file. Yes, that would lead to 2-4 pythonXX.dlls in memory ... yes, all the 
other DLLs (wxPython...) would be more than one time in memory, and on 

But: some compression added (UPX) the files would be of reasonable size 
(below 20MB), and distribution would become a charme.

+1 for this wish
