pywin32 vista installer fix & general distutils installer name bug

    I just noticed that pywin32 does not work with vista directly (tried
    import win32clipboard, => ImportError). The problem is the installer
    name; it's the usual

    pywin32-210-win32-py2.5.exe

    It needs to be renamed to:

    pywin32-210.win32-setup-py2.5.exe

    In order for vista to catch it as "installer".

    We renamed the IPython exe installer to have "setup" to get around the
    same issue.

    Just posting this for benefit of googlers. I'll complain about this on
    distutils-sig as well.
