New submission from Cournapeau David <david at ar.media.kyoto-u.ac.jp>:


I wanted to build a msi using the build_msi distutils command for one of
my package, but at some point, it fails, at the function make_id, at
line 177 in mstlib/__init__.py, for a file named aixc++.py. The regex
indeed refuses any character which is not alphanumeric: is msi itself
really that strict, or could this check be relaxed ?
