I _do_ like PyGTK on Windows. It works without problems.
You can find a ready to use py2exe script on
http://www.pythonwiki.de/PyGtk. You could also bundle the runtime DLLs with
your py2exe'd application, but I have never done this. You could try doing
this like described here:
http://aspn.activestate.com/ASPN/Mail/Message/py2exe-users/2476686 (use the
setup.py script from the wiki and start at (2) in the mail).

HTH.

greets,
Marek

PS: Yes, I admit it is harder than py2exe + wxPython but I still like
PyGTK.
