... but double-clicking the source file makes it work ok - after I fix a dodgy 
import trick I used that works on Linux, but not on Windows. I presume that 
on Windows, double-clicking a .py file doesn't add that file's directory to 
sys.path? It couldn't find my other module. No problem, monolithic is fine, I 
just need to get something submitted that works on Windows.

I take it back. I have _no_ idea what was going on with "script" and 
"project_script". After exiting IDLE, restarting and re-running the 
pygame2exe script, it all worked. Argh!
