[Twisted-Python] Freezing twisted successfully?

I'm trying to freeze a script that uses twisted conch so I can distribute it 
internally easily. It seems to work but I get different behavior out of the 
freezed executable which ends up breaking it. After some hunting I think 
deferreds in threads don't work and I think it's because app.installReactor 
uses reflect.namedModule which imports using __import__ which PyInstaller has 
trouble figuring out or just acts differently when frozen.

Anybody have any luck using cx_Freeze or PyInstaller to freeze a program with 
a threaded reactor?
