That's great news. If this works in the end, I'll remove that magic and leave
setup.py alone, so that:
1. Users of a .zip download who are assumed to be familiar enough with
handling source installs, can do the normal
$ python setup.py install
No 'magic' auto-adding of the install argument under Windows, which is a gross
hack to begin with.
2. Users of the graphical installer will simply double-click on the executable
and it will run to completion.
We're on the right track, great :)
