This would stomp on the person's existing python installation -- which
is the point of virtualenv -- no none should use the system python for
stuff that they distribute this way. So virtualenv or perhaps
distributing all of python too, and putting it in a unique location, is
the way to go.
Another option is py2exe, bbfreeze, PyInstaller.
They will install everything needed. I think bbfreeze even supplies a
custom interpreter, so you can essentially build a custom python distro
