In the interest of getting a *functional* installer as quick as possible, I
am going for the custom action route using the IIS custom actions supplied
by Autodesk. The Wix IIS extension just seems confusing to me, especially
with regards to:

2. Enabling/Disabling IIS-specific stuff in a declarative approach that Wix

By the time I have grokked this IIS stuff, I probably would've had a working
installer via custom actions.
