Do you think, the time reduction to compile a installer is big between a MakeNSIS dll and a MakeNSISW dll?
The slowness in the current makensisw is caused because of makensisw constantly peeking and copying the output to the console. This is being changed for the next version. You shouldn't see much difference in the compile time especially since you would have already loaded the GUI components before you compile. The advantage of copying the output is that users can use new versions of makensis.exe with the editor. In fact, you should just add the option to let the user choose which version of makensis.exe to use.
