Since I know that Bulat is the one always asking for a size reduction
in the installer, why not have a minimal installer (without c++), and
an extra-utils installer (with c++). Once GHC no longer requires C on
Windows, we can move C compilation from minimal to extra.

Of course, this requires installer hacking.
