Ok, I'm hard_wiring shlex_split.

Do whatever you are doing to install the normal ipython shortcut, i.e.
in ipython_win_post_install.py:

make_shortcut('IPython.lnk',sys.executable, '"%s"' % ip_filename,
my_documents_dir,
'IPython - Enhanced python command line interpreter',
(pycon_icon,0))

(i.e. sys.executable is the path to python).
