I'm still opposed to having the path manipulated by default, but Brian is working on a patch to edit the path with the default being off. If python.exe stays in the toplevel directory, it means that two entries have to be added to the path, making it even more messy and bloated than path editing already is. So I still think that it should be all in bin in the long term.

Anybody opposed to changing scripts to bin please speak up; I'm happy to change it for the next alpha release, and let people object here in this issue (with the potential of reverting the change if there is too much opposition).
