The tutorial section "Executable Python Scripts" should
include information on making Python scripts directly
executable on Windows:

1.  Add .py to some environment variable
2.  Associate interpreter with running .py files (???)

The procedure varies amoung the different flavors of 
Windows.  On NT, .py can be listed as an executable 
extension.  For all the flavors, the installer updates the 
registry with helps for clicking on file names to get them to 
run but does nothing for command line usage.
