[PythonCE] Pyro on PythonCE

You guys have already been tremendously helpful in my efforts to get up to
speed on PythonCE, so I hope that you will bear with me on one more startup
question. I have now successfully gotten PythonCE 2.3.4 running on my Dell
Axim x51v. I also seem to have wxPython running. Now I need to get Pyro
running. Pyro comes with a distutils setup script, so I need to run the
command "python setup.py install". The usual way to do that is with a
command window. As far as I can tell, Windows Mobile 5 does not come with a
command window or a way to run a single command. I went prowling on the web
for a command window and found PocketConsole. Unfortunately, it does not
seem to work on Windows Mobile 5 (it claims compatibility with Pocket PC
2002). The only way I can think of to run the setup is by creating a batch
file (or a Python script), but I think a command window will be useful. Does
anyone know of one that works on Windows Mobile 5?
Even if I am able to run the setup script, I wonder whether the installation
will work because the file system hierarchy on winCE appears to be different.
At a minimum, I will need to modify the script so that the test for platform
treats 'Pocket PC' the same as 'win32'.
