That is look like the wise thing to do.

But let's say we have a entry just under Commandline_Utilities Python:

    - - - - - -   python: Python executable and runtime
    - - - - - -   python: register this as the primary python on the windows registry

That would make it optional and users would be able to make a decision.

What that entry would need to do is to update the path on a .reg file and then apply to Windows.

It is just a suggestion, not an argument.

My best regards,
