Pyhton Interpreter Startup time

I'm looking at a small app which would need a very quick
startup time for the Python interpreter. It doesn't do much (copying
and caching of files, no GUI) but I need the Python interpreter to start
up very quickly (<1 second on a Windows box). Is there a way to have a
'stripped' down Python interpreter which can start up very quickly on a
windows box. Once thing I was thinking of was to use PyExe to make a
quick startup (does it compile down to C code, therefore not using the
Python interpreter at runtime?). Is this a possible solution?
I observe that the second time I start python it starts up quicker
but I'm assuming that this is dependent on the environment and can't be
relied upon (or something like that).
Thanks, in advance for your help.
