[New-bugs-announce] [issue5936] Add MSI suport for uninstalling individual versions

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

With issue5311 now resolved, bdist_msi can generate a single MSI that
can install to any number of Python versions (for pure Python modules).
Right now, you can only install or uninstall these MSIs, but it would be
nice to also provide a "Change" installation.

For example, if you installed a new version of Python, this would allow
you to add your already installed pure Python modules to this Python
installation by just going to Add/Remove Programs and selecting the
feature for the new version.

I'll try to make some time to work on this.
