Setuptools with Python 3 support is called distribute, and it should work
for installing IPython, although I haven't tested on Windows.


Pyreadline (which is necessary on Windows) may be a problem, I don't think
it supports Python 3 yet. A quick search turns up this branch:
https://code.launchpad.net/~shimizukawa/pyreadline/python3 , which
apparently allows it to be installed using 2to3.

Good luck!
