Alternatively, you can grab the sources for setup and add an option
to do what you want the way you want it.
Well, that's a trivial option with open source, of course. But also
it means to maintain a branch of our own setup.exe, which is the
least favorable of all.
That's the glass half-full view of it. ;-)
Assuming what you come up with is not just specific to your needs, I
see no reason the new option couldn't be included into setup's sources.
After all, I believe that's the ideal option that you were hoping for
(but already knew didn't really exist) when you asked the question.
