I'm looking to deploy a script to multiple users via a custom button on a toolbar in ArcMap, but I'm a bit unsure how to do this seeing as ESRI has dropped support for .mxt templates (see link below). Before, it was easy to replace a user's Normal.mxt file with a custom one that contained special toolbars/buttons. Has anyone found a workaround for this short of adding the custom button in each individual template .mxd and user created .mxd?

Thanks in advance for any feedback from the community!
