 ANN: New version of McMillan Installer for Linux

Version 4a4 of Installer for Linux is available here:

  http://www.*-*-*.com/

While mostly a bug fix release, there's a new facility for
hooking modules at analysis time, so hidden dependencies
can be automatically included.

Bug fixes:
 - pathprefix is handled properly
 - package __path__ is respected during analysis
 - intermediate build files are cleaned up
 - Freeze finally deletes all it's files on exit

What is it?
 The Installer is a set of tools for distributing python
 applications. The target machines do not need to have
 Python installed, or may have a different version of
 Python installed.

 There are  top level scripts for 3 configurations:
 - Standalone: create a single directory installation for your app
 - Simple: wraps a Standalone with a simple install script
 - Freeze: creates an executable that unpacks itself at run
   time, and cleans up afterward.

 More complex distributions can be created by writing your
 own config file and passing it to Builder.

Old-Python-style license.
