IN response to my own post earlier... re windows users

The issue for me was for the developers wanting to start on pygtk as a 
development platform

That requires
gtk - the core gtk c+= engine
glade - libglade and the designer
and others.. ?
and packaging all the above up with NSIS

although the same can be said for application deployment which is almost 
another issue altogether

It appears though from all the responses that this would be an issue 
that needs to be addressed for windows users, unlike me and by apt-get ;-)
