[Python-Dev] Why are useful tools omitted from the Win bin distro?

Just helped some people on the Italian Python mailing list find some 
indispensable tool (Tools/i18n/pygettext.py, in this specific case) and 
they expressed astonishment that the tool isn't in the standard Windows 
binary distribution, which was all they had downloaded.  This set me to 
wondering -- is there any reason why this and other tools &c should NOT be 
included in that binary?  Could we add them in 2.2.2 and later releases?
