The section in the docs "Using Python on Windows" would need to be 
updated, but would this have to happen for every current version of Python?

The docs here 
are in my view possibly overkill, what do the rest of you think?

The ouput from py --help seems fine but nothing happens when pyw --help 
is entered, is this by accident or design?
