well, that is what the install.py in the CVS tree does.  I dont use
Windows enough to know what the right thing to do is?  AFAIK, when I
installed vtk-python uner windows I had trouble using the
vtkTkRenderWidget and runnign install.py (which in turn copies
TkRenderWidget.dll to a system dir) solved it.  Any better options
would be appreciated.
