setup.py is not needed:

cd ~/Activities
zip -r OurMusic-1.zip OurMusic.activity
mv OurMusic-1.zip OurMusic-1.xo

Setup.py simply ensures that you use the right version number for the  
bundle file name, it includes only what's listed in MANIFEST, it uses  
the right directory etc. But if you know all these constraints you can  
simply use zip to make a bundle. No magic involved :)
