Jack, I just read about Freeze at http://www.mcmillan-inc.com/install1.html
It seems to create an executable for the system on which is run, a Wintel
system for me. If I port that module to a StrongARM-processor based iPAQ,
should I expect it to be able to run? Or were you suggesting compiling the C
module that comes from Freeze in the PPC development environment? In order
to do so I would have to setup the PPC development envt. As you commented,
that would be a steep mountain to climb, starting from the flat plain of a
purely Python-based developer, no C, no PPC dev envt.

Freeze works fine for WinCE Python. It's a bit of a steep mountain to 
climb when you use it the first time, but it creates a nice standalone 
.exe that includes everything people need to run your app. And it starts 
up quite a bit faster too.
