New submission from Steve Dower <steve.dower at python.org>:
The change to pull the redirector executables as part of scripts was... perhaps too clever. There exists code out there that uses EnvBuilder to create environments _without_ copying scripts, which now results in an environment that does not include python.exe.
It also undid symlink support, as scripts are never symlinked.
I'll restore both.
