I by "all this stuff" you mean: Windows file associations,
then this would be the place:

  http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd758090(VS.85).aspx

If you mean: what the Python installer does to set such
things up, then there is some information here:

  http://docs.python.org/using/windows.html

but not really covering the exact question you've
been asking. You'd have to hunt around the archives
of this mailing list and/or look at the msi source:

  http://svn.python.org/view/python/trunk/Tools/msi/msi.py?view=markup

(and feel free to submit a doc patch if you think it might help)
