Now, for extra credit, develop a distutils 'Command' object to do the steps 
you just described, by having it invoke the py2exe command, etc.  Then, you 
won't have to worry about forgetting steps, and you'll be ready to package 
other apps in this way.  For some example Command objects, check out the 
distutils.command package in the stdlib, or the setuptools.command package 
in PEAK or PyProtocols CVS.  (The setuptools ones are simpler.)
