[Python-ideas] Python package file type

I agree, it's definitely not a simple task. I'd say to be somehow viable
these would be the minimum requirements:

* Registration of the file type
* Detection of installed python runtimes.
* Installer user interface that wraps the main setup.py flows.

I might find the time to work on a POC for windows though I'd rather hear
some python-ideas feedback before I embark on such a journey. One gripe that
comes to mind is the fact that some people might like the .tar.gz file type
and never want to switch over.
