Great!  By the way, if you are interested in building a true windows installer 
for it, I had a first stab at the problem a while back.  The idea was to use 
python2.3's ability to make a true installer via:

./setup.py bdist_wininst --install-script=ipython_win_post_install.py

However, things didn't quite work well, and not having a windows machine to 
debug on made me drop the whole thing.  But the post_install script, along 
with some attempted improvements, are here:


You might find some of this useful if you need to build a true installer.  If 
you get this to work, let me know what changes you made and I'll toss them 
into CVS.
