I'm willing to work on this, but I need some guidance. As you might have
seen, I have now added notion of a config.py which controls how the MSI
is built. This gives independence from the source directory, and allows
for multiple check-outs of the msi directory, each for a different
Python build and version (I have currently two of them: one for 2.4,
and one for 2.4-Itanium). This config.py is documented in msi.py.

As for more documentation on the mechanisms of msi.py itself: I have
asked a colleague to go through the file and comment on parts of Python
code that might be unclear. However, I have the concern that all his
questions are likely answered in MSDN - so I'd be really curious what
documentation is lacking that is *not* part of MSDN.
