For Python binaries proper: they are PGP-signed, so in principle, it
would be possible for users to verify that they have not been tampered
with - although I doubt many people actually run this check. For the MSI
file, there is also a Verisign code signature on it, which Windows will
check (although people might not worry if it stops being available after
a hijack).
