as far as i remember, there were several pitfalls in using PEAK lazy 
modules with installer hooks (py2exe) or marshalled modules (McMillian 
installer).  if you are interested, you may look at the thread "imports 
(Re: Package organization)" starting at 

unfortunately, i did not manage to explore the matters further.  i just 
came up with the solution described at the Wiki page mentioned above, 
which is quite acceptable for our company.

the drawbacks of this approach are having many application-private 
copies of python library (if you install several applications 
distributed like this) and the application source code obscured less 
than it would be in a binary package (like py2exe).  both of these 
drawbacks have certain positive sides.

best wishes,
