Unless PyInstaller is looking good -- there may be an advantage to a 
code base with more people working on it. Mac folks would still need to 
do the Mac-specific stuff, but not the rest of it. bbFreeze isn't bad, 
either, but needs more work -- I don't think it ever could produce an 
App bundle.

What did you have in mind here? I can't quite image what unit-tests to 
write, but maybe a suite of test cases fro various packages that could 
as least be auto run on various platforms.

There is a start to this in the samples dir -- so maybe we "just" need a 
test runner.

by the way, I think bbFreeze has extended modulegraph -- partly for 
better egg support.

and I suppose quad architecture support -- Kevin, isn't that your
