Closing this as fixed, as the discussions I've had at PyCon have largely suggested that the fix I've implemented is good.

In short:
* the default (obvious) install will be per-user only into %LocalAppData%\Programs\Python\Python35 - fully modifiable by whoever installed it but inaccessible by other users
* the default location for an all-users install will be %ProgramFiles%\Python 3.5 (with redirection for 32-bit processes) - fully modifiable by administrators and usable by all users

Obviously users can customize the install location to reduce security, but we can't prevent that.
