      Description

      I would really like to see that you can create shortcuts in the project.xml file and then i am thinking that it maybe can look like this:

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <Package>
        ...
        <shortcuts>
            <startmenu exe="%installdir%\program.exe" icon="logo.ico" workingdir="%installdir%\bin">start program</startmenu>
            <destop exe="%installdir%\program.exe" workingdir="%installdir%\bin">start program</destop>
        </shortcuts>
        ...
      </Package>

      and then the <shortcuts> tells the installer framework that the shortcuts are comming and the <startmenu> shortcuts will be in the startmenu dir and <destop> shortcuts at the destop dir etc and the params can be:

      exe= the executable file

      icon = the icon of the shortcut(optional else the icon of the executable)

      workingdir = optional default is the installation dir

      i think that will be a good adition
