This seems to come up over and over again. About every other month.
The developers are aware of it. The general consensus is that "yes, our
installer could be nicer/prettier/easier/etc"
However, until someone either takes the time to write a better one, or
foots some cash to get a better one written, or blackmails a developer
in to doing it or something else, we still have what we have.
I think the biggest problem is that the installer is "good enough" -- so
nobody is particularly interested in rewriting it until it's not good
enough any more -- even though it could be better.
