Frankly, I don't want to distribute a separate ZIP file once the
installer is ready.

The current installer is 879k whereas the ZIP file is ~1.6M.  The LZMA
compressor of NSIS is pretty neat.  I tried adding the iconv.dll
but this one doesn't compress that well, so we will just give a hint
to install it or download it from the installer.
