But wouldn't that leave us in the situation where Python's installer is
*not* "OEM Ready", nor has it been certified as such - but an installer
based on ours, but with unspecified changes has?

Of course, I don't object to that and still think we should help where we
can, but if that is true it would make the premise of this thread a little
misleading, as obviously HP could then make *any* necessary changes without
our agreement or even knowledge.
