So, if I add this to the post install script under run:
    make_shortcut('IPython_pylab.lnk',sys.executable, '"%s" -pylab -p
scipy' % ip_filename,
                  'IPython Scientific (-pylab -p scipy)',
can I build a windows executable IPython installer from Ubuntu, or do
I need to copy my source distribution onto a windows box?  Do I need a
compiler that works on windows?
