--------------------+-------------------------------------------------------
 When installing numpy-1.5.0-win32-superpack-python2.7  on windows7 64 bit,
 the installer can not find python2.7 in the registry.

 Its a know problem with the distutils installer.
 see http://bugs.python.org/issue6792
 and
 http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3652625/installing-setuptools-on-64
 -bit-windows

 Need to have a separate 64 bit windows installer or look for the
 additional registry entries to find the install location or have a fall
 through that allows a user to still install even if it doesn't find python
 2.7.

 PyQt v4.7.7 uses the fall through option.
 wxpython has a separate installer

 Someone provides unofficial numpy (and scipy) binaries here
 http://www.lfd.uci.edu/~gohlke/pythonlibs/
 but I'd much prefer using an official package (if possible)
