I've done some limited work in this space already. Nothing usable but --
I'd reccomend anyone pursuing this to use the McMillan Installer 
(http://www.mcmillan-inc.com/install1.html). I have used py2exe for other 
projects, but COM support in py2exe is not as robust.

Not that I got Installer to actually build the Outlook addin, either,
but I suspect that it would be a morning's work for someone with the
inclination to tackle it.
