I have a working (though not comprehensively tested) implementation of script
generation in the pythonv branch (I've referred to it in the relevant Python
issue). I believe you had some GSoC work done on this last year, but I'm not
sure what the status of that is; I could help bring this into packaging, if it's
OK with you. It would be a shame if it were left out of 3.3 for lack of
time/resource. I'm quite comfortable in both POSIX and Windows, and I think
consideration of both environments is needed for the script generation, because
of e.g. executable launchers being needed on Windows (at least, currently).
