Just to add my tuppence,
I have in the past had to write something in Python, a connection to 
google calendar, to just sync the calendar with a local database...
If the local Python could be used, that would be great...
Is it easy to add packages to the python-portable environment?
- and then package that within an installer as well for release?

I did a presentation on my oPython Omnis Python Wrapper 10 years ago in Fulda, but unfortunately only a few were interested, in the end no one used it then, David McKeone did some tests with my sources in 2012 but I don't know whether he pursued this any further ..
