It doesn't seem that hard to implementi the fusion dll. The hard part
is that you will probably have to dipe really deep into assemblies for
it if you want to implement it properly. I don't know the specific
code paths taken, but msdn seems to have at least some info on it.

I think that the fusion dll is installed when installing the .net
framework because my windows xp install doesn't have it in system32.
It is in C:\windows\\framework\${VERSION}, which means
it's probably installed as part of the .net framework. Calling it from
MSI doesn't seem to be too hard.
