Something I've done a couple of times in the past is to follow Bruce 
Eckel's "Browser as Desktop UI" model 
(  I've created a web-based 
application that runs on a "client" or standalone machine.  You can 
either use the Python built-in SimpleHTTPServer or CGIHTTPServer, or, 
preferably, one of the Python web frameworks like CherryPy that creates 
a standalone server for you.  I can definitely highly recommend 
CherryPy.  Anyway, a standalone CherryPy server running your application 
would likely solve all your problems.  You just have to have Python 
installed and (currently) only one .py file.
