Someone please make a setuptools-0.6c11.win32-py2.7.exe.
Just out of interest: Why are these versions needed?
If you're asking why there are different .exe's for different Python versions, it's because currently, different modules and entry points are included, based on Python version. Distutils on Python 2.3, for example, does not include an 'upload' command, so setuptools provides one there. But on 2.4+, it is not necessary for setuptools to provide it, since it is already included.
Their isn't any C-code in setuptools, doesn't the source version work just as well?
There are .exe's so that Windows users don't have to do a lot of extra manual steps to get the installation process started, and so that they can uninstall via the Windows control panel.
