I had assumed so, though if someone cares enough to champion 
the effort, that could be changed.

Right now, the windows distribution is really geared toward 
the crowd that really doesn't know and doesn't care about 
Python distributions, etc. It is intended to "just work" 
in a way that doesn't require the user to know anything 
and that doesn't interfere with any other Python things 
that may or may not be on their system.

The downside, of course, is that we currently don't have 
an easy way (at least not as easy as the no-brainer dist)
for people who do know and do care about Python installations to 
set things up to work with their current Python.

I'd be happy to support someone in the effort of fixing 
this, though I can't commit to getting it done myself. 
Someone with enough knowledge about how Python windows
installs work and a rudimentary knowledge of WISE should 
be able to work it out so that the win32 distribution is 
willing to let you pick which Python to use if it sniffs 
one (or more) out on the target system.
