The attached patches add the following features to MSI building:
 * allow splitting into multiple CABs
 * prevent problem when data-base commits grow beyond a certain number
 * fix to handle all file names
 * change the way unique keys are created in the File and Directory
tables by adding a globally-incrementing number to the file name (unless
it is a keyfile.  This prevents the repeated searching of a large set
(important when you are packaing 47k files...)
 * fix so that the file id that goes into the HashFileTable is never
larger than 72 characters.

Adding distutils to components for this old msi patch.

These seem like useful things for those making msi packages with distutils.

Strictly speaking, they apply to Tools/msi only (IIUC). So adjusting
them to msilib is likely extra work.

Has this issue been overtaken by events?

I think they've all been fixed anyway, but yeah, they're not going to be relevant with my new installer.
