Actually, I disagree that the examples and NSIS include files should be generated from a single source for both. Eventually, the number of languages supported for Unicode will continue to grow while the number ANSI languages have already stopped growing. The common subset (e.g. Latin I) may be able to share a common source but even then there are things like System calls that will be subtly different for ANSI and Unicode. Much like the C++ source itself, we may have to add #ifdef UNICODE or some equivalent into the NSIS scripts if we pursue having one source script for both. But again, I imagine that the Unicode languages will continue to grow which will never have an ANSI counterpart. And Win9x/ME OSes will continue to dwindle in significance.

Unicode NSIS advocate -- for latest build and source.
