Comments wanted: Proposed change to install layout

There is a proposal on Python-dev right now (championed by me) to harmonize the install layout for Python between platforms. This change would be most noticeable on Windows. Specifically, using Python 3.3 or above: 

1) the 'Scripts' directory would change to 'bin';
2) python.exe would move to the 'bin' directory; and
3) the installer for Windows would get the optional ability to add this directory to the PATH.

Please reply if this would help you or harm you, and how.

Thanks,

Van
