[Python-Dev] Compressing MSI files: 2.4.2 candidate?

I just found that I can save somewhat more than 1MiB in
the MSI file by using LZX:21 instead of the standard
MSZIP when compressing the CAB file. A resulting package
can be found at


Can people please test whether this installs just as well?

Is it ok to use this modified procedure for 2.4.2 final (2.4.2c1
still uses MSZIP).
