Martin von Loewis released a MSI installer of 2.4 some time back, which I
installed. But without binaries of pywin32, ctypes and cx_Oracle, I can't
realistically use it for anything other than "playing". (wxPython and PIL
would be nice, but not essential).
I've no idea how to get over this hump - it's a problem I hit right through
the alpha/beta cycle, all the way to the release stage.
