Ah, so the nant build file is using wix, so, all I need to do is include my
config stuff into the files, and build with nant/wix.
Of course the last remaining problem is getting TSVN built/the files in the
right place so that I can just run that to bundle it back up.

Hmm, I think, I'll give in on this actually (timescales a bit tight) and
instead I'll provide an Inno setup installer that contains the TSVN
installer, runs that, then does our config. Faster...

Yeah, once we have initial settings in place it'll be fine to update people
painlessly (if needed), but, it's a very tight timescale on implementation
(i've been pushing for it for months and months, then all of a sudden we
need it in place next week, fully, including migration and user training). I
want to make the switch for the developers as painless as possible to ease
They already have to throw away their current working copies, install a new
app, do a check out, learn how to use the new app... etc etc. If I ask them
to put a config in place as well, and make sure this and that and the other
is done. It'll be more of a pain than I can afford the time for.
Cheers for the help,
