[Distutils] windows installer and setuptools

2 questions:

1. Can I use the (great) dependency handling of setuptools in a windows 
installer, eg by packing a python egg in a windows installer?

2. When I make a windows installer (bdist_wininst) I assumed the windows 
installer is python-version independent.  (BTW, I use setuptools.)
But, when making the installer with python 2.4, and installing with 
python 2.5, my package is installed in the right place (python 2.5), but 
the egg-info is installed as bots-1.1.0-py2.4.egg-info.
As far as I can see, this is not a problem for running my application.
But, is this how this is supposed to be?

Kind regard,
