Sure, will do it before 2.2a3. That's Sep 19, right?
The sooner the better -- this is a "priority 9" patch!
Looking at the patch again, it seems sufficient to install into lib/site-packages if sys.version >= 2.2. No fiddling with loading python at runtime, importing distutils.sysconfig, and so on in bdist_wininst.
Sure, whatever. Up to your best judgment; I've never actually looked at the C++ code that's compiled into that big blob of binary data in bdist_wininst.py. The C++ probably wouldn't mean much more to me than the binary blob does. ;-)
