I don't think the cygwin installer is that bad (though it would greatly 
benefit from a "filter as I type" widget). The amount of effort to built 
a reliable set of "this is how to build an osgeo4w msi installer" guide 
and tests would be significant, judging from the plethora of different 
tools and guides available.

((hmmm, Wix looks interesting though,
