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.
