Hi, and thanks for your interest in improving distutils2.

I am not a Windows user, much less developer, so I have many questions about your proposed pysetup.bat:
- Will “@%~dp0\..\python.exe” get the proper path for people who do not install Python to C:\?
- Aren’t there issues with .bat scripts (or maybe it’s with .com scripts, I never remember)?
- Shouldn’t we install a script instead?
- Shouldn’t we generate an .exe file instead (see #12394)?

In other words, I need more info from Windows experts about what works best for Python developers :)
