I just discovered the "bug" which prevents bdist_wininst from installing
data files and scripts.
bdist_wininst.py:109: root_dir = install.install_lib

I noticed this comment in the source:
# XXX hack! Our archive MUST be relative to sys.prefix
# XXX What about .install_data, .install_scripts, ...?

So what about data and scripts? Why dont they get in the archive?
