You can rename library.zip into something else for each utility.

Why not?

If it's really not possible (for reasons I cannot imagine), as py2exe is
distutils-derived, you can do anything with subclasses ;-).

Maybe make a subclass of build_exe which will add files into
library.zip, instead of creating a new one each time.
