Deploying Python _Applications_

Seems to me the point of the question wasn't how to use distutils for
application deployment (which I don't think is what it was meant for),
but what else is out there.  To answer that, py2exe and Gordon
McMillian's Installer are available.  I can't say much more, as I'm
still puzzling out how to use them myself, but there are plenty of
people here to help.

You can write any code you like in the `setup.py' script.
I use a .ini file with all these parameters written at install time
(on M$ world NSIS is doing this). And then at run time the script load
the .ini file and run.

HTH.
