As far as py2exe goes, no, you're not wrong.

On the other hand, there are readily available utilities that
will do what you are asking for, independent of Python and py2exe
and everything else.  Standalone single-file packagers.

Unfortunately I don't recall the names of any, but I'm pretty
sure you can find one if you look, or someone else will remind
us of the names.
