This should fix #1119, but I can't test it, because I don't have a Windows machine handy, and Python in Wine seems to be having problems.

Can someone with a Windows machine test it? You'll need Python 3.2 installed. With this branch checked out, run C:\python32\python.exe setup.py bdist_wininst. This will produce a .exe installer - run that, and see if it completes without errors and creates start menu entries for IPython on Python 3.

Thanks, this I understand and am super comfortable with, so I'll do a test in a VM, and merge if it works.

Various few small fixes (print_statement, '3' suffix on files) are required to the script itself, but I've made them locally and this works just fine. I'll merge in a sec.
