> If you want me to take this request to pydev, I will, but it seems straightforward to me.

"I'll go get Dad" seems a fairly immature threat and it's really not necessary.

However, (after writing and then deleting a long exposition of the options) the most reliable way of doing this is indeed to install one context menu item per Python install, and I may even be able to handle cascading, at least for 3.5 and later. The one caveat is that if you don't install the launcher you won't see the association at all, and this limitation is necessary to avoid corruption due to parallel installs (granted Python 3.4 and earlier will corrupt the association, but there's nothing we can do about that now).

When I get home tonight I'll update the patch I've been working on and make sure it works as I'm expecting.
