Hi Goetz,

I'm terribly sorry. I will rename it. I thought I'd looked at all the
msi alternative tools before embarking on writing this, I guess I missed
some.

Your pymsi actually looks interesting, I will look at whether we can
get the functionality we need from there instead, or submit some
patches.

Hi Dirk,

You're entirely right. I'm generally terrible at naming things and I
did a particularly bad job this time.

I'll ponder a new name. :)
