Is it as simple as

python setup.py bdist_wininst

?  I just did and I got this:


If this is what you need, I'll be happy to make it available on the
main dist/ directory when we get 0.7.4 out the door.  If you can leave
the release announcement written, I'll merge it with the main one and
we can make a joint release.  It doesn't really add much at all to my
workload, so I have no problem doing it if that's OK with you.
