Creates single-file installers for eggified distributions
EggFreezer creates single-file installers for an EGG distribution, along with all dependencies, which can be used without network access.
The result is a .py script which bootstraps a virtualenv and installs the requirements that have been “frozen”.
Multi-platform “universal” installers can be created by adding extra platform identifiers with the –platform command-line option. Note that binary eggs are not too portable, see http://philikon.wordpress.com/2008/06/26/is-there-a-point-to-distributing-egg-files/ for more details.
