... sys.executable is suggested ...

The problem is that sys.executable is the Python on the system creating
the installer .exe, not the one where it's being installed. But the "run
script after install" Andy Robinson suggsted should allow this.

If I don't get a patch from Andy today I'm going to do my best to fix
the two issues with the Win32 installer (docs and .bat files) myself
tonight, so we can do 1.0rc1 tommorow.
