I see. I looked into my scripts and it turns out that actually I do
build the bdist_wininst versions as well, I just didn't know what they
are for, so I ignored them. Now I can see that those will get uploaded
to pypi, so I did that now and it works!

I learned something new today, thanks for the explanation. So pypi
should be done.
