The exe target is just a plain zip SFX, even though it looks like an installer already. (Still suitable for small projects). Windows users however may wish to have proper

- But is still woefully hard to build and distribute. (Vala with GObject introspection make it unsuitable for static builds.)
- And lastly doesn't actually provide an installer GUI. Generated MSIs are a plain text-based extractor still.
I'm not actually a Windows user; so don't care enough about this. It's still a sensible feature to have for
