Actually I've done what Volker asks in several different ways, although
none of the solutions is general enough to post here. The most fun
instance was saving electrophysiology recordings to a .py file such that
I could double-click the file and have the __main__ function plot the
data! In fact, now that I think about it, I've constructed most of my
examples to operate in this way -- run the .py file as a script and see
the data it contains in some kind of visualization. "import" it and use
it in another module. The nice thing about making it a module is that it
goes along for the ride with distutils without you having to even think
about it.

A couple of other ideas:
