With the addition of #3561, I think we might want to have the file association feature follow it in not being a default feature. It seems a bit off that we don't want to change the way "python" reacts on the command line by default, but we do want to change the way "" reacts by default.

Is the thinking behind this issue changed in any way by the implementation of PEP 397 Python launcher for Windows?

There has been a lot of water under this bridge, and I'm sure Steve has thought this through for the new installer, so I'm closing this as out of date.
