The most full proof way of solving the .bat file launcher 
incompatibilities (inconsistent arg handling: #1356, #1371, setuptools 
script launcher doesn't work on Windows: #1112) on Windows is to include 
a native .exe launcher

Groovy has had one for a while now:

But JRuby just recently created their own for their 1.4 release:

Since our .sh/.bat launchers are based off JRuby's, adopting their .exe 
launcher should probably be pretty straightforward

The JRuby launcher now supports unix platforms

I've noticed many problems with jython.bat distributed with 2.5.1 lately (#1491, #1599). It would be great to replace jython.bat with jython.exe.

a note to support the need for resolving this issue: While py.test works with Jython on Unix it does not do so on Windows because of the missing launcher-support.  Effectively I'd like to be able to use virtualenv and install packages including cmdline tools on Jython/XP.

I guess I'm the third test tool author signing in here who's just run into various trouble trying to make things work with Jython on Windows due to this issue. Would really appreciate a fix here.
