How to implement something like javas' webstart in python?

P: n/a
To increase pythons' popularity, we need a tool like
webstart which will install (and update when needed)
python program through web. This will make IT and
managers happy since they don't have to install or
update programs.
Can Javas' webstart be used to distribute pythons'
application? Can somebody points out basic code to do
this task?

In the beginning we need something simple which will
work in intranet and hence I don't think we need to
worry about security issue. Since pythons' modules are
small, it will be best way to distribute applicaiton
without worrying about installation. Can py2exe,
freeze, installer be modified to do something like
this?
