I simply think Windows is outside the scope of this PEP - the title is
"The "python" command on Unix-Like Systems" - IMO it should be kept
short and focus on exactly what the title says.

As above - I think Windows should be kept out of scope.

As mentioned in my other email, I'm -0 as I think they are slightly
misguided. Why not leave the PEP with "Unix-like" in the title to
Unix-like systems and create one with Windows in the title for Windows? :)
