The "Windows SDK Components for Windows Installer Developers" has a
command line tool called msidb that is incredibly useful for creating,
editing, and exporting MSI installer databases, think of it as
winemsibuilder on steroids.  This patch series implements much of the
functionality of the msidb tool, maintains compatible CLI flags, and
the underlying MSI functionality necessary to support these features.
With this patch series all the existing winemsibuilder functionality
is available, plus the ability to drop streams, export the
_SummaryInformation table, export binary streams (Binary/Icon tables),
and some miscellaneous bug fixes.  A big feature of the implementation
is that it allows you to edit existing installer databases, rather
than just creating new ones.

This specific patch creates the initial "stub" version of the tool
with the ability to open, close, and create installer databases.
