using third part modules in arcgis addin scripts.

i have created a python tool to use within arcmap that outputs an excel file. I would like to make an addition to the tool so that somewhere in the output excel file is a line that states  "the sum of row x is __".


The current front runner idea is to use the xlutils module to do this. However, this tool will be shared with others who do not have this module. I know that you can put the module in the addin folder to that it is installed when the script runs but how to do this is a bit cloudy to me.


If anyone could shed some light on this subject or has any other ideas as to accomplishing my goal without the use of the xlutils modele it would be greatly appreciated.
