Sorry for the delay, it's been a busy month.

I just tried python 3.1  If installed under c:\program files, the
access control list would be correct, only system & administrator
accounts get the modify privilege.

The default installation is to c:\python31, in which the access
control list has the issue that unprivileged users can modify it.

I guess a possible remedy to this is that after installation, the
setup program can just remove "authenticated users" from the access
control list, or at least remove the "modify" privilege from the
corresponding entry.

Thanks,
Hong
