I see these possibilities:

 * add just the Python DLL PDF file to the page

 * add a ZIP file with just the PDB files for all components

 * add a second MSI file which includes and installs the PDB
   files alongside the .dll/.pyd/.exe files

 * add the PDB files to the standard MSI files

We could put such files into a separate section on the release page.

Note that the PDB files are just around 1.6MB in compressed form
(probably less if integrated into the MSI file), so the last option
looks like the easiest solution.

FWIW: I don't think that the current release page layout looks
cluttered:
