[wingide-users] Compile and debug in WingIDE

By its dynamic nature there is no compilation step on python, at
language level is not possible to just compile a standalone binary
executable, there is however, projects that generate an standalone
executable with the python runtime embedded to run your python code
(check for py2exe, pyInstaller, cx_freeze, etc). Such projects are
outside of the WingIDE (and probably any other IDE) scope.

The suggested workflow would be to develop and debug your code from
source (with WingIDE), once you find it OK use py2exe or one of the
aforementioned tools to create your standalone distribution (this can
be done with WingIDE, you just run your setup script), test the
result, if everything ok distribute, profit!
