Definitely not a "must-have". IMHO, the only "must-have" for the
Aisleriot installer is that it should be an all-in-one (i.e. you
don't have to install glib, gtk+, librsvg etc separately). If you think
WiX is better suited for the job — and producing a native MSI file
sounds like a very good reason — then use it! :-) And since WiX is free
software just like NSIS, there's no problem from this side either.
