I can't help with python static bundle.  Its something I have never
heard of.  But have you heard about virtualenv?  Its a application
that lets you create local python environments -- so that downloading
modules stay in a local environment and only run when you enter that
space.  I believe it temporarily changes some paths so that your local
modules get loaded instead of looking in normal area where python
keeps them.
