Except if you're using something like py2exe, which bundles up only those
dlls that (it thinks) are needed, which will always include pythonXX.dll. I
could (just) squeeze a py2exe'd application on a floppy with Python 2.3, but
couldn't do that with 2.4.
However, it's rare that size matters this much <wink> and it's not like
Python 2.2/2.3 are going anywhere, anyway.
