 ANN: 2nd beta of Win32 Installer release 4

The second beta of version 4 of the Win32 Installer package is
here:

http://www.*-*-*.com/

The second beta fixes some bugs in the first beta (particularly
tracing resources into subpackages), and adds semi-automated
support for COM clients.

Version 4 handles all python versions from 1.5
onward (it's been tested with 1.5 and 2.0). It has a number of
new capabilities:
 - set a Windows version resource in the executable
   (NT / Win2K only), including the ability to create a
   version resource from Python
 - a utility to analyze the dependency tree of a script / module
   (including a cross-reference)
 - warnings issued when dynamic code encountered
   (__import__, exec, eval)

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.

 The Windows version (there's a more limited Linux version,
 too), has 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.
