I think that would be useful, especially if the current 2.2-compatible
win32all does not work with 2.3, or if you have added features since
that was last released.

Not me.  I know how to build and install Python from source on
Windows, but setting up another project is a major pain for a Unix
weenie like me, so I'd much prefer a binary distribution.
