Pretty straight forward request. It would be nice if there was an installation method where I can just unzip a Python distribution rather than running an installer. 

Specifically this is for getting Python to run in Wine. Right now, Python for Windows runs fine under Wine, but the installer doesn't, so a manual process of running the installer on a Windows machine and then copying the installed resources to a Linux machine with Wine installed. A zip distribution would solve this, since I could just unzip it and run it under Wine.

This is a duplicate of issue36010, which contains an explanation of why there is no installation method with a zipfile.

Also see the packages on, which are essentially just zip files (with metadata and installation tools available).
