Anyone know how to install CV3a for Python 3 in Windows 7?

Clearly the contents of CV3a's vc?? folders must be copied to C:\PythonXX, probably to site-packages, but after 30 minutes of searching the web (and this site), I can find nothing on this.

Anyone know which CV3 Alpha binaries need to be copied and where?

And I assume it's now: "import cv3"...

You can find the cv2.pyd files in the directory opencv\build\python\2.7\[x86|x64], but they're for Python 2.7 only. Copy one to site-packages and import cv2.
