[NTG-context] Windows Installer for MsWinContext

I'm back with my idea of installer for mswincontext  distribution. I successfully use my local (post-install) version , which simply sets env. vars, but I feel there is need for more. Anticipating new mswincontext build, I can implement the installer for it using free Inno Setup software.
The controversy is about setup file content. I see it as whole mswincontext, because it is declared as minimal distribution (so, nothing can be thrown away). However, I was suggested on this list to make some parts downloadable on demand, so I need to ask: what parts to make? 
In general, I believe that if classical Windows installer for ConTeXt were available, it would gain more popularity and appreciation. Of course, I'd like to hear from Hans and Taco what they think about it, and whether they dare to facilitate this.
