You will notice this is already in a feature request on the pgFoundry
site, so it'll probably get there not too long from now. It is also well
documented that it is currently not supported (in the silent install
instructions).

Until this is eventually done, there are many tools available to do this
outside the postgresql installer in the support tools and resource kit
for Windows.
