That's not entirely true; Cygwin comes with a package management tool
that probably could be used to set up a repository of python packages
for native Windows: <http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin-apps/setup.html>

This package manager is in no way dependent on Cygwin, supports (basic)
dependencies, etc.  Of course some people would have to take care of the
packaging work (just like happens for most open source OS distros and
for Mac OS X already).

It seems like XEmacs is already using a fork of that installer for the
same purpose.
