The fineprint in the release notes for MSDE 2000 SP3a includes an interesting paragraph:

Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) SP3a provides merge modules to support existing applications that use merge modules.
The Setup utilities for new applications should be written to call the MSDE 2000 Setup utility instead of directly consuming the MSDE 2000 merge modules.

As if to stress the importance, this paragraph is repeated three times throughout the document.
