We should hook the "build" menu in VS to allow a user to build a package. We would capture all the linked files, referenced projects, compiled .pyds and .dlls, and non-site-package dependencies and copy them to a build directory. A user could then execute "python program.py" in the build directory and everything would run without them having to hack around with the PYTHONPATH -- all the imports would be in the correct place. Then for deployment, the user could just robocopy/ftp the entire build directory to the desired deployment path.
