The zipapp module allows users to bundle their application as a single file "executable". On Windows, the file is given a ".pyz" extension which is associated with the Python launcher. However, this approach is not always equivalent to a native executable (see http://paul-moores-notes.readthedocs.io/en/latest/wrappers.html for more details).

I suggest adding an option to zipapp that prepends a small executable to the zipapp that uses the Python C API to launch the application. A prototype implementation (zastub) is available at https://github.com/pfmoore/pylaunch.

If this seems reasonable, I'll work up a full patch.
