Combining python and sqlite DB into a single, "executeable".

Ya, I thought of that... However...

   - It would be nice to be able to execute it directly (i.e,. click on it).
   You can't, "execute" a directory.
   - It would be more work to send as an email attachment.
   - I thought it was a cool idea, and had hoped someone else had figured
   out how to do it.

In my case, I have a bunch of data to plot, and I'd like to be able to send
both the data and a program to view and manipulate the data. When the
recipient is done, they have the option of deleting the one file and there's
no mess. It got me thinking of lots of other things the general paradigm
would work for (i.e., my address book example).
