[Kst] pyKst under Windows

      A few months ago I played with the Windows version of pyKst.  I was
able to get it working with some some minor changes and discussed them with
Barth.  I don't know if anything became of them, since my quick work around
didn't work properly in Linux.

     Unfortunately, what I really needed was also to be able to make
changes to KST2's menus so that students only had one application to deal
with, even if other applications were running behind the scenes.  (For now
we are using a separate pyQt based GUI - so we may be able to combine it
with KST in the future - and we are telling KST what to display by
generating kst files instead of using the Python interface, for now :-)
