Since version 2.0, PyScripter does not require a separate install of
rpyc, and existing installations of rpyc do not  interfere with
pyscripter.  The remote Python engine is now the default for new
installations and by default the remote engine is reinitialized before
each run to avoid issues with running GUI scriprts.
