[New-bugs-announce] [issue5608] Add python.exe to the path in windows?

New submission from Thomas Willis <tom.willis at gmail.com>:

All the vast amounts of documentation out there on how to do neat things
with python seem to assume that python is already in the system path. 

It would be nice if the installer went ahead and set this up for the
user. In my experience there are windows users that don't know how to do
that themselves. As a result, when opening a console(something else
becoming more and more foreign to windows users....) and typing "python"
they get an error and possibly give up, and go back to VB.net or Excel. 

This seems like it would be a relatively easy thing to setup for them
and likely increase world domination.
