And of course, the irony is that "pure distutils" bdist_wininst installers are not python version specific. It's setuptools itself that modifies bdist_wininst to make the installers it builds python version specific ;-)
This is only the case for setuptools' *own* installer, because it installs different contents for different Python versions. Setuptools has some modules that are only used in Python 2.3, for example.
