Lol! I've been using/tinkering with firedrop for a few weeks now so I am
vaguely familier with wax.  I don't really like the idea of using a largish
wrapper over the top of a huge library though, especially on a small embedded
device!  Also wax is incomplete, and as I've said I don't know enough Wx to
fix/add stuff.

BTW in Firedrop my page template was failing because the editor I was using
inserted tabs instead of spaces.  I didn't really feel like fixing my
template so I poked around in embedded_code.py.  If you add ".replace('\t','
')" to the return statement in replace_separators tabs vs. spaces becomes a
non-issue ^_^

Hope you don't mind, attached is my hacked version of setup-registry.py which
registers ".pyw", and adds the PythonCE icon to all Python files!  It can
also be found here:

I haven't tested it yet!  My ipaq is out of commission for a while because I
needed its SD card -_-
