I believe that 'python setup.py bdist_wininst' will create a win32 installer,
but it will only do so on Windows.  It also has some limitations (there's no
facility for putting anything into your Start menu, for example) but it does at
least get all the files in the right place.

The trouble is that it requires MSVC++, and so has to run actually on a windows
box, and can't be automated on our unix release server.
