It may be neat, but it doesn't even seem to match the OP's own
requirements, which include this statement: "a single executable without
... files needing to be written out to the local disk before execution"

If, on the other hand, one permits that behaviour, then I doubt
that a py2exe + UPX (or whatever that beast is called) solution
would be about the same, if not arriving with such a killer name. :-)
