New submission from Mark Mc Mahon <mtnbikingmark at gmail.com>:
In _msi.c, summary_getproperty() and summary_setproperty() raise an exception if the type being set/got is VT_FILETIME.
This issue is to track adding support for (or declining to support) FILETIMEs in msilib.SummaryInformation.GetProperty()/SetProperty().
I have included a patch which adds this support (with some basic tests).
Should this function accept/return datetime.datetime - or a timestamp (both require conversion anyway). I have used datetimes in my patch.
