I rarely use Windows, but do support them, so this sounds good to me.

But one confusion:

With py.exe no need to mess with the PATH.

How does py.exe get on the PATH?

Now that the need for python 2 and 3 on the same machine is greatly reduced -- is it so bad to put python.exe on the PATH?

Also, if order to get python top level scripts to work, there needs to be a PATH entry for that, too.

I get what py.exe is about, but maybe it's a lost cause.
