FWTools does not update system paths, the registry, or install anything
in central locations like C:\windows\system32.  It avoids this deliberately
to avoid conflicts with other packages.

The downside is that some sorts of stuff, such as extension installers
knowing where python lives may not work.  I don't know a way to fix that.
