I'm jumping in mid-thread here, so apologies if I've missed something. 
Just want to clarify something: the main AS distribution of Python 
(ActivePython) for Windows is an MSI.

There is sometimes a .zip file with an install.bat -- but that isn't 
really intended for wide use. Is that what you are referring to here?
