Bootstrapping

P: n/a
I need some help with adding bootstrap code to the core of python, the
idea is to leave a super base core inside a zip file (python25.zip
works right out of the box) and leave the rest in separate zip
modules. Making it more friendly with pendrives and more practical as
a standalone runtime (ie, without install) and fully modular. The
thing is that i need to modify the base importer to add this special
"site-packages" .
Any hints?
thanks in advance (and a lot!)

I've seen it, but its different, the idea behind pyinstaller is to
bundle python for a specific application, my idea is to modularize and
compact the core of python and reuse the egg concept for extensions.
The thing is that refuses to load the site-packages when the core is
compressed.
thanks again!
