I used NSIS lots of years ago. Finally abandoned it because its poor
support for partial updates. At the time some people were discussing the
possibility of adding a component for updating a package through the
Internet. Like a network installer but with the added capability of
re-running and updating the previously installed files. Guess that
nothing came out of it.

I'm eager to see how well Guile competes with Emacs Lisp as a
convenience for extending Emacs :-)
