Users ask questions like "How do I write batch files using Python?"; there should be a document that acts as a user's guide specifically for Windows users.  This could be similar to what the Macintosh Modules Reference is becoming.  This should be part of the standard documentation and could acquire the Windows module documentation.

Another question that should be answered in this document:  "How do I create/recall modules?"  This one comes up most with first time programmers and users from environments that don't expose source code as editable text files (VB?).

Can we move this out of bugs and into feature requests?

actually VB can make most files into editable source files. 
(this option is found in the save dailog in most versions) 
but that is besides the point)

Slightly off on a tangent, but may be worthwhile anyway: MacPython now has 
an Apple Help Book (html files with some sugar coating) that is meant as the 
very first thing to get people started. This might be a starting point for a 
similar help document for Windows.

The sources are in Mac/OSXResources/app/Resources/English.lproj/
