I think we'll switch to Inno Setup 3 when it's released.  I'm
especially hoping for the "install from the net" option to be
implemented; that should allow us to include optional TCL/TK
installation, without increasing the size of the distributable by 9
Meg for everyone.

The change you suggested looks like it would be compatible with Inno
2; I'll take a look.
