Another option I thought of:
 - get the Nullsoft NSIS installer
 - write a Python wrapper to NSIS if desired
 - within your app, include:
    - embedded py2exe
    - embedded/wrapped NSIS
 - within your app offer a menu option to 'export this
   program', which changes data files as needed, then invokes
   py2exe and NSIS to create a whole new installer exe

That way, you'd have what you're after - a way to distribute your app,
including its current state, as a single EXE file. Also, it would have the
advantage of this EXE being an installer which sets up start menu
shortcuts.
