Comment(by maphew):

 For the short term, I would install the [wiki:pkg-shell] which ensures a
 shell with all the correct environment variables set (meaning if, for
 example, qgis changes it's python plugin path your bat file will
 automatically be up to date). And then call pythonwin after running
 Osgeo4W.bat with:

 `start "PythonWin" /B "%pythonhome%\lib\site-
 packages\pythonwin\Pythonwin.exe" %*`

 More properly we should re-package [wiki:pkg-python-win32] with
 pythonwin.exe in .\bin and desktop shortcut.

 ((I wonder if we should also change the end of osgeo4w.bat to `@cmd /c %*`
 to allow things like `call osgeo4w.bat pythonwin`?))
