It's still possible to build services, and I won't argue that the
changes are well documented ;-).

In py2exe 0.5, you specify that you want to build a service by giving a
named argument 'service' to the setup() function.
Before, 'service' was a command line option (that could also be stored
in the setup.cfg file).

For py2exe 0.5, there is quite some user-provided documentation in the
wiki http://starship.python.net/crew/theller/moin.cgi/Py2Exe, and
extensive samples are included in the distribution. IIRC, the advanced
sample contains a service.
