Yes, I've tried locally on a bdist_wininst exe, and easy_install could
install it. I have not tested it from the network.

What about just pushing the non optimized bdist_wininst installer on
pypi ? Is it guaranteed that easy_install would look there before
anything else ? When running easy_install in virtual env, I can see it
looks on pypi at first, but I don't know if that's something which I am
supposed to rely on,
