Summary: Drop-Handler for Python files

Initial Comment:
Hi!

We had a dscussion about what happens when one drops a file on a python sourcecode-file in the python-forum [1]. It turned out, that nothing happens at all. So someone brought up a solution. It is not really a problem with Python but it would be nice to add this to the Windows Installer.

The proposed solution was to add the following to the registry (this is the format of the registry editor):

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Python.File\shellex\DropHandler]
@="{86C86720-42A0-1069-A2E8-08002B30309D}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Python.NoConFile\shellex\DropHandler]
@="{86C86720-42A0-1069-A2E8-08002B30309D}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Python.CompiledFile\shellex\DropHandler]
@="{86C86720-42A0-1069-A2E8-08002B30309D}"

That should be simple thing to do using the MSI-Installer.
