[Python-Dev] Search-friendly shortcuts for Windows?

Something I noticed after installing the 3.2 beta on my Windows 7
laptop is that the start menu shortcuts aren't particularly search
friendly. Searching loses the heirarchical information, so attempting
to directly locate "pyt" provides two separate "Python Command Line"
shortcuts, with no indicator as to which one will start which version.

Given the changing dynamics of the desktop launch menus to better
support direct access as an alternative to hierarchical navigation,
would it be reasonable to consider including the major version number
in the start menu shortcut names?

(Question is mainly for Martin, obviously, but I'm also curious if
anyone else has encountered the same thing)
