Is anyone working on that?  I have the VC7.1 compiler too, but haven't
tried to use it yet.  Maybe someone should check in a project
(separate from the VC6 project, so people don't *have to* switch yet)?

Are the tools needed to build an MSI installer included in VC7.1?  If
not, are they a free download?
