It does make the Start Menu links.  But, it only does this for a few
things.  Namely it does do ipcontroller, ipengine, iptest, etc.  Thus,
there is no way of calling these other programs.  Also, does this mean
that you can't start ipython from the Win32 command line by typing

I very much like how the egg creates .exe files for _all_ the scripts,
so you can just type the command name at the command line.
