win32 install needs improvement

Bug Description

when installing on Win32, no application launcher stub is registered via setuptools

Other packages (paster for example), will put both a 'paster' file and a 'paster.exe' file in PYTHON_HOME\Scripts\

omni sync puts only a 'omnisync' file there, which prevents the file from being run as a regular CLI utility

instead you must apparently launch it using:
python x:\full\path\to\omnisync [options] <source> <destination>

Thankfully, this is rather easily fixed, as you can have distutils take care of it for you with one line of configuration, unlike the fragile, roundabout and verbose way I went about doing it. I will have it fixed soon, thanks.

This should be fixed in rev. 65.

Changed in omnisync:
