Nothing quite so nefarious...*grin*...Actually, I've just realized that the
initial question wasn't posed properly.

What I want is to be able to compile Python scripts so that they can be run
on a system that doesn't have Python installed. I realize that maybe that
doesn't make a lot of sense, but I want my product to be as widely
distributable as possible.

Thanks again,
