In this case, I do not want to make a distribution package. On windows
I am able to copy the contents of Python25 and a few pydll's to the
same directory and run python on a machine which doesn't have python
installed. Mac doing the same doesn't work.

This allows me to distribute various scripts for different purposes to
be executed by the user within my group.
