Is the problem solved? Source code looks fine to me; the deploy/
directory should get created by the ensure_dir call.

@Kevin: Any specific reason why you used string addition and os.sep
instead of os.path.join to create paths? The manual adding seems more
error-prone to me. But maybe this is not the problem after all ... as I
said I cannot test on Windows.
