or even just do:

    SET PATHEXT=.py;%PATHEXT%

and then "myscript myarg" will work for all scripts on your path without 
compiling (if you don't set PATHEXT then "myscript.py myarg" will still 
work, and tab completion means you don't generally need to type the .py for 
scripts in the current directory).
