File/Save As..., pick a file name. When asked about whether to embed
source files or strip them out, choose Strip. Then email the resulting
.mshark file to me.

It looks like your Python just takes a truly inordinate amount of time
to execute any code. Some of the problematic modules like httplib have
been moved to local imports, but the time it takes for your Python to
execute the code in that module is still ridiculously large. Can you
profile just importing httplib instead of numpy?
