windows svn install: PYTHONPATH should include django-trunk not django-trunk\django

The documentation/install/ page instructs the reader to create a PYTHONPATH environment variable in Windows to allow for 'import django'. The line reads:
"you can define your PYTHONPATH environment variable so that it includes the django subdirectory of django-trunk."
I found this allowed for import of modules underneath django (ex. import bin), but not for django itself. Suggested change:
"you can define your PYTHONPATH environment variable so that it includes the django-trunk directory."
I have only tested this on windows with rev6718. Don't know if it effects/will work on other OS.
