Actually the new (NSIS-based) installer does allow for unattended/silent
installation - I think the option is /S, the last time I looked - so manual
extraction isn't necessary; the older winzipse-based installer allows for
manual extraction with winzip (or winzip-compatible utilities). In both cases,
the installer does not much more than extracting the files: namely a few
registry entries, uninstalling, and optionally adding cjk font suport. Not too
sure about setupgs.exe. setupgs.exe isn't used nor needed in the NSIS-based
installer, and probably shouldn't/isn't be packaged.
