Yes (since 3.4 is still only in alpha).

Also this line will change now we don't call 2to3,

copy build\py3.3\dist\biopython-1.62.win32-py3.3.exe dist

to just:

copy dist\biopython-1.63.win32-py3.3.exe dist

Something else I think I should have done to the wiki page
is move epydoc nearer the start - it has often found issues
needing fixing.
