I agree the migration to Program Files & a different installer build process is more than ambitious enough for 3.5.

For the embedding case, it's not that it *can't* be done, it's just a PITA.

Perhaps for the per-user no-admin-rights needed case, we could direct folks to the big http://portablepython.com/ bundle as a vendor neutral all inclusive bulk distribution?

To be completely clear, I'm talking "invite Perica Zivkovic to become part of CPython release management and include Portable Python release timelines in the CPython release PEPs" levels of engagement. "Is Portable Python fully operational yet?" could become one of the key gating criteria for leaving the beta phase and entering the release candidate phase.
