Are we talking about scripts for programmers to work with libraries
that you publish (e.g. a command-line tool like cythonize), or
applications for end users and IT staff? Virtual environments are
primarily a solution for developers. For deployment to end users, take
a look at what Paul Moore is doing with pylaunch and the embedded
Python distribution:
