Windows installer, different versions of Python on Windows

When you install Python it plug entries into the registry, so that when 
you go to install add-ons that are pre-compiled binaries, they look into 
the registry for the python directory.  If you can find out how to 
manipulate the registry so that the binaries would recognize different 
installations, you'd be good to go.  This would probably involve having 
copies of the same key with different values.
