has anyone tried to 'compile' the whole WebKit thing via py2exe to a
The goal is to run eg. AsyncThreadedHTTPServer on a cd without
installing python and it's modules.
One would have an intranet Server in-a-box, which was great to use with
an interactive catalogue i plan to ship to my customers. It's not on the
web for security and other reasons.

I've never heard of anyone doing it. Building a standalone
distribution is a worthy goal and would help flesh out remaining bugs
in WebKit, but it would not be an easy task. It's probably much
easier to deal with the security issues you mention and put the
catalogue on the web.

is a possible replacement. There's also a built-in HTTPServer in the
Webware refactoring I've been working on:
