ok this is a two-parter...

10.a  we need OPTIONAL parameters when creating InstallScript functions.

10.b. we need to be able to pass a param to an InstallScript function from a Custom Action.

Why, you ask? Well... either would suffice. If I could supply a default value to an OPTIONAL param in an IS function, then I could (in theory) call it from a Custom Action (which currently doesn't support passing params to IS functions). 

Is there a workaround?  Well yes, of course... I just write a wrapper function that doesn't need a parameter and call the function that does need the parameter. I call the wrapper from the Custom Action.  But lets be honest, that's kinda kludgy.
