I don't know. This is my second installer using nsis.
NSIS should support updating over internet. Only I don't knoh how it
When in the future will be the need for updating.

What is the current state of imagemagick?
Will the binariess of imagemagick be included in the installer?

It seems to me that it isn't acceptable when one GTK app should
influence the others.

In the File Release System (FRS) documentation there is written that
space for file releases isn't limited.
