FYI, I'm seriously looking at switching the PythonLabs Windows installer
over to Inno.  It's simple (as such things go) and easy to use (as such
things go).  We've been happy with the Wise installer Mark Hammond talked
them into letting us use in '94 or '95, but it's showing its age and I'm
apparently not nearly as persuasive as Mark (they don't even acknowledge
receiving my emails -- but then I wouldn't either <wink>).
