Ok Markus. I'm sorry for pressing... My hope is to do not have a
broken community around this issues. I would like to come to a common
thought, and work for a coherent and clear roadmap. Probably it's me
(and the users) that don't have it clear, while it is for all of the
developers: who is doing what and in which direction?

>From an old Qgis log, Frank has explained that his dream is to have
everything coherently packaged under osgeo4w, and hopefully to be able
to extract standalone builds from it  (ie, qgis, grass, qgis+grass).
This viewsight probably would be the best from the users point of
view. The best would be to have osgeo4w setup, and standalone NSI
installers... but I'm talking with no experience on what this would
require, or if it's possible.

I hope the discussion will go on.
