What about any dependencies? While Linux distros may have Python
installed, it may be an older version, and may not have one or two
libraries that your app needs. E.g., I have Python that came with my
FC2 install, but it doesn't come with Tkinter, so if you build a
Tkinter-based app and just send me the .pyc file, it won't work.
