EWWW - no :)  They are keys.  Does Nullsoft provide for arbitrary msi
table data for the IIS registration virtual directory registration?
Opening our previous installer in orca should let you browse where the
appropriate registration keys are.

Any tool that doesn't provide arbitrary table data for the installer schema
(including IS - which happens to provide it) isn't worth investigating.
Any tool that does let us set up arbitrary columns for the .msi that is
being prepared should allow us to manually provide more advanced iis,
com, net registration data, even if there's no eligant support.
