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.
