I can assure you that I'll do it from trunk from now on and expand my
numbers of WCs.

I have already used this changes for RC3 and RC4 (I felt I had to because
the uninstall option was half broken).

Another issue is that I often have had to change the installer scripts in
order to be able to deliver a workable installer. That situation was
quite bad some one and a half year ago (ie. diffrent runtime files
depending of which compiler that made the binaries). This situation is
much better now, and it's getting even better: Branko gaved me some pre
1.2.0 binaries in february so I could have time to deliver some
realistic code in the trunk in time to the final 1.2.0.

I actually want more freedom when we talk about the installer or maybe
packages tree could have it's own repo or tree?
