No, not a bug. I just forgot to note that Windows 64-bit in general 
requires a Business Edition license to install any package from PyPM. 
Therefore, all of your projects' binary builds under 
http://code.activestate.com/pypm/author:Noah-Kantrowitz/ are available 
for free except on Windows 64-bit.

Yes, an OEM license is required if you want to commercially 
*redistribute* (not use) ActivePerl, ActivePython or ActiveTcl (the core 
interpreter and its support libraries).
