The other distributions for Python are already fine for the win32
platform.  There's no reason not to just install the standard BeOpen
2.0 release and then stick win32all on it.  The latest win32all
packages are taken from the ActiveState web site, but they are still
available independent of the ActiveState package itself.

I don't think it has to be a lose situation - multiple packages can
likely survive just fine.
