I'm thinking that the best solution is probably more like what PyChecker
does.  Basically, install the bin scripts into e.g. c:\python22\scripts,
possibly as batch files that call the original scripts, possibly as the
original scripts with ".py" added.  I've found it useful to add the scripts
directory to my %PATH% for pychecker, and so this (for me at least :) would
make things like twistd automatically available to my command prompt.
