Comment (by zeromus):

 I don't speak for every windows user, but I can try to. Once a windows
 user has gone to the trouble to install python and build tahoe, I don't
 think he cares whether he has to double click tahoe.exe or tahoe.py. It is
 going to feel gross to him, and very likely unacceptably so, compared to a
 redistributable zipfile with an executable in it, e.g. a py2exe frozen

 I advise you not to sweat this exe at all and focus on making sure the
 py2exe process is working instead.

 Folks who use python and windows will have a different opinion, because
 they're used to this.
