Technically, you are right..

but imho.. windows installers are overkill and shouldn't be used
for this sort of thing. That is, installing libraries. And not
the fault of the package authors either...

if we could clean up the python universe and ensure all packages
are in either .egg or distutils packages then i think it would
be a nicer place...

Take care
