  According to a private email, things were inconsistent because py2exe didn't (doesn't?) support bundling DLLs in the zip several years ago, so things *had* to be a certain way.
  I haven't tested things today, but py2exe does have code to load DLLs from a memory location. So it /might/ be loading from the zip without filesystem I/O. If it does, we may want to change this to level 2 by default.
  It's not a big deal though and can be done as a follow-up.
