OK, I can do that.

I'm a neat freak when it comes to menus so tend not to add uninstall
options to the Start menu that simply replicate what's in Add/Remove
Programs (which I think is where it should be anyway). You can also
right-click the msi file and select uninstall incidently, and there is a
todo item to allow add/remove components, uninstall and repair options
if you run the installer a second time.
