Well, it's *new* as the IronPython installer has never done this before
- and I would certainly question whether it is desirable for it to be
the *default* for IronPython.
IronPython doesn't use .pyc files (and not really .pyw either I think)
so it isn't surprising it doesn't change those. I would really prefer
that IronPython doesn't seize the association with .py files without
explicit instruction from the user .
