I have been asking about how to handle this both on IRC and several times
on the dev list without getting any response, thanks :-)

The inno setup in tags/0.37.0 are outdated, the inno setup in the trunk
are a perfect match for 0.37.0 and (have you noticed: -Not a single
problem or complain about the Windows installer this time? :-)

In my case, the Windows installer are made after you have made the
binaries. Hopefully, some bindings will come on regular basis (jave,
perl)as well so I can make a full Installer as well.

The thing is that I really don't know what to include in the installer
every time it's created.
