There is/was a project called exemaker for Windows.  (see Pypi for 
link).  I don't use Windows any more, but it was a nice trick, when it 
worked.  Not all python scripts could be wrapped in it, but basically it 
let you wrap a python script in a tiny Windows program which launched 
the usual python dll's.  You could call it anything you liked, and 
that's what the task manager saw as the process name.
