On installing on Windows, the Python installer
associates .py and .pyw files to the new installation
of python. The installer should cache the previous
associations, and in the event of uninstallation
restore them to their previous values if the
application the are associated with still exists.

This allows for easier migration back to 2.3 in this
case, but also for easier back migration in the case of
installing a beta version of python 2.5 or whatever in
the future.

This is not possible to implement. If you want to not add
associations for 2.4, you need to uncheck the "Register
Extensions" feature in the installer UI.
