As Éric mentioned, there are two proposals here:
1. Move the python exe
2. Change 'Scripts' to 'bin'
As for #1, what about letting the location of the python binary be an install option:
[ ] Put python.exe into binaries directory and add to PATH?
And then make it unchecked by default in 3.3, checked by default in 3.4, and then remove the option for 3.5?
As for #2, I don't see a lot of resistance; the issues seem to mostly be with #1. Could #2 move into 3.3?
