There seem to be no documentation (other than old threads from 2004) on how to create a standalone .app bundle that embeds the Python interpreter without hand-writing a setup.py script.
Changing target to Release doesn't do it -- the binary is still quite small and doesn't work properly when invoked outside of Xcode.
This seems like the beginning of something, but it doesn't seem to be generic enough (lots of values are hardcoded): https://bitbucket.org/ronaldoussoren/py2app/src/f6d036b7b9a5/py2app/bundletemplate/setup.py
Thanks in advance! (And sorry Ronald, I don't know how else to contact you)
