Well, ATM it will detect that it's already installed, and offer to
remove the program.

But that can be changed to allow just this, yes. What it will not allow
(per MSI specs AFAIK) is to install the same version in different
places. But it can still install multiple services calling the same
postmaster.exe with different arguments. I think :-)
