[XML-SIG] PyXML Windows Installation to Multiple Python Installations?

I have two Python 2.3 installations on my machine - a standard one and 
the one that comes with Zope.  However, there is only one registry entry 
pointing to the Python location.

The PyXML 2.3 Windows installer points only to the location stored in 
the registry, and does not allow me to browse to another. So I cannot 
install to my standard Python installation.

The workaround I have used in the past for other installs (not PyXML) is 
to install to the one place found by the installer, then copy to the 
other (erasing  all .pyc and .pyo files).

I have three questions -

1) Is there a better workaround?
2) Can the installer be revised to allow the user to browse for a Python 
3) Is it possible to add additional Python installations to the 
registry?  The key structure used by Python does not look like it is 
possible, but maybe there is some way to do it.  I haven't found 
anything on the Web so far (e.g., Google).
