I got so far that I can initialize the schema, i.e. I have code that
takes the current schema, and dumps it into a Python source file,
which, when run, will restore the schema. This includes data for the
validation and install sequence tables.

I was next looking at including the actual files, and was planning to
supply a single CAB stream. I got stuck finding a CAB API, and plan to
invoke cabarc.exe instead to generate the CAB file.

This was a couple of weeks ago, I have made no progress since.
