Using distribute_setup.py from http://nightly.ziade.org/distribute_setup.py fails on windows in python_cmd due to command escaping errors.
Using distribute_setup.py from hg trunk results in the following error:
PS C:\Users\jaraco\Desktop> .\distribute_setup.py
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "C:\Users\jaraco\Desktop\distribute_setup.py", line 244, in <module>

I was going to suggest a patch for the 0.6.1 issue, but it appears the distribute_setup.py has changed significantly since that release. Any suggestions on getting distribute running on Windows? How can I help?
