The Python Windows installer[1] should automatically add the Python and 
Scripts directories to the PATH environment variable.  (If you like, 
you can also provide a checkbox in the installer GUI that users can 
uncheck if they don't want this behavior.)

This issue was discussed at http://nabble.com/Why-does-Python-never-add-
itself-to-the-Windows-path--td8044465.html and the majority consensus 
was that this is a good idea, but nobody has volunteered to implement 
it.

^ [1].  The installer is generated by the code at 
http://svn.python.org/view/python/trunk/Tools/msi/
