New submission from Steven Bethard <steven.bethard at gmail.com>:

[Suggested in issue5095 by John Machin]

The 2.6.1 documentation consists of a *single* line:
"distutils.command.bdist_msi — Build a Microsoft Installer binary
package". The docs should explain briefly what an msi file is, and why a
packager might want to use it instead of wininst.
