Summary:
A minor typographical / naming convention error removal
of the Win32 extensions.

Problem:
The installer mistakenly copies the installation log into
Python23\Lib\site-packages\W32INST.LOG instead of
INSTALL.LOG which causes it to fail when attempting
to uninstall the Win32 extensions.

Potential Fix:
Either the location of the install log or the call to the
uninstaller placed in the registry should be modified to
correct this, or potentially both.

    I can't repro this. You are correct about the filename, but
    my testing shows that the uninstall key for win32all does
    point correctly to the W32INST.LOG file, that this log file
    contains the correct entries, and that uninstall works
    correctly.
