[IPython-dev] egg doesn't install scripts on windows

Egg fails to install scripts properly on windows. In windows they
should have the .py suffix or they won't work.

Solution: rename scripts/ipython -> scripts/ipython.py
same for pycolor

And change setup.py to install all files in scripts as, well, scripts.

It should work in posix too, doesn't distutils strip the .py suffix
for scripts there?

running win32_manual_postinstall should be redundant if
python24\scripts is in system path...

Patch attached.
