Have you looked at http://wix.sourceforge.net/ ?
WiX looks interesting but I'm neither in the position to change the installer nor do I have a strong opinion. It's Martin's area of expertise.
On the one hand a XML based MSI generator could be easier to maintain. On the other hand it would introduce another dependency to a 3rd party tool and things may get complicated if we leave the road. Automation tools tend to make common things really easy but special and uncommon stuff really hard.
We build all our installers at Resolver Systems using Wix - dynamically generating parts of the templates and doing all sorts of weird and wonderful stuff (creating shortcuts, setting registry entries, testing dependencies, conditional includes in the installers and so on).
