  which is not the fault of Tcl, BTW - "starpack" technology is the Tcl 
way to make a single-file executable containing Tcl, Tk, scripts and any 
number of libraries. Unfortunately, no python interpreter can be 
included so far. By bridging Tcl_FileSystem with Python's VFS, this 
restriction could be overcome.
