It depends what you want.  Note that py2exe doesn't *compile* the scripts,
it just bundles them along with the Python interpreter into an .exe.  You
won't notice any increase in speed (check out psyco <http://psyco.sf.net>
for that) from doing so.

What you do get is a packaged script, so it's relatively easy to use it on
any machine (in particular, you don't need to install Python).  (If the
machine already has Python, then you'd save space by just having the script
& required modules).
