Hi John,

There isn't yet an integrated method for installing python extras which 
aren't part of the osgeo4w package system. A route that does work with a 
bit extra twiddling is to register the o4w python as the system default 
python[1], after which you can use the standard installers. If that 
doesn't work or isn't acceptable you'll have to manually put it in 
python's site-packages directory (there may be some more steps than 
that. I'm not familiar with pygments).

[1] http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/ticket/114 - doesn't work on 64bit 
systems, but if you study the .reg files one directory up you can see 
how to make your own reg file to import manually.
