If you write such a PEP, please also research and write up the issues with modifying PATH on Windows (they're largely scattered throughout bugs.p.o and earlier discussions on python-dev).

Is anyone proposing doing anything new with that? (other than changing the default)

My preferred solution for this is to rename "py.exe" to "python.exe"

I was going to propose that in this thread, but then thought: "there has GOT to be a reason why that reall obvious solution wan't done in the first place", and didn't have time to go back and research it.

But if it's feasible from a technical and backward-compatible perspective, great!
