Since you asked: delete the .exes and release the source and give a link to 
python.org for anyone who does not have it already installed.  Since I 
already have at least two versions of Python installed, I don't need four 
more copies.  Since I have no reason to trust that you are not distributing 
malware, I would not touch your .exes anyway.  Python is really meant for 
source distribution.
