Note that in the current 2.4 alpha 2, there's a bug in bdist_wininst
that causes that to barf.  I went to file a bug report, but it looks
like it was already fixed a few weeks ago in CVS, but in order for
that to work with alpha 2, you need to tweak the bdist_wininst.py
module to actually return installer_name from the get_installer_name
method.  Of course, if alpha 3 shows up tomorrow a per Guido's recent
note, this is a moot point :-)
