Oh, and another tidbit...  PEAK's 'fileNearModule' stuff (like peak.ini, 
for starters!) isn't going to like being in a zip file.

Right now I'm reviewing PEP 302 and PEAK's usage of import tricks to 
ascertain whether there are any other issues involved in e.g. running PEAK 
from a zip file. In particular, I'm going to have to see if the 
'fileNearModule' stuff can be replaced with something that uses PEP 302's 
'__loader__.get_data()' approach to reading data files.

Unfortunately, none of these fixes are likely to come quickly enough to 
help you with your immediate problem.  :(
