New submission from anatoly techtonik <techtonik at gmail.com>:

The MSI installer is generated using msilib.py from http://svn.python.org/projects/python/branches/release27-maint/Tools/msi that is dependent from external win32com module. We also have internal 'msilib' module that is unused for some reason.

Is it possible to incrementally transition from Tools/msilib.py to builtin 'msilib'?

See http://codereview.appspot.com/4080047/ for the start of the thread.
