Okay, new development. I've written a MAINFEST.in file like this:

recursive-include garlicsim_wx *
recursive-exclude garlicsim_wx *.pyc

When I do an sdist, I see all is good, it includes my images in the package.
But, when I do a bdist_msi and run the installer, it doesn't copy the images
to the garlicsim_wx folder in site-packages.

Why? What do I do?
