Thanks, I hadn't seen that. I'd downloaded the list archive, but 1600
messages is a lot to get through...

In which case, I think what I'd say is that the Windows setup (default
installation directory is the Python application directory) isn't what I'd
like. But it looks like I may have to persuade Guido over that... (Actually,
there's a thread going on comp.lang.python on this topic, so I'll go and see
what's happening in that).
