Or perhaps something small can be taken from win32all, or written as a
platform specific extension to disutils.

users, is not a very sexy position to be in in an Open Source community.

And I couldn't have much to say until I understood disutils well enough.

Now, I think I can say without the fear that I am missing something

still does not address some fundamental issues.  And I am not sure how it
can ever address both Windows and non-Windows standards and expectations
without some added functionality that specifically addresses some of the
quirks of the Windows platform and its user base.

And it happens that with win32all installed, I think all fundamentals can be

What more minimal code might be sufficient .... not my job, though I would
