installing pylint on win32

Installing pylint on win32 with Python 2.5.2 is fairly straightforward:

1. Download logilab-common (under common), logilab-astng (under astng), and pylint from http://ftp.logilab.org/pub
2. Extract all sources.
3. Inside each base directory, run: C:\Python25\python.exe setup.py bdist_wininst
4. You will find an exe to run in in each directory's dist folder.
5. Install common, then astng, then pylint.
6. Run pylint.bat from C:\Python25\Scripts\pylint.bat
