I fully agree that NSIS should support Unicode.

But I'm not sure about that fork. The website states:

Is it really worth the trouble if it is just a fork that will
eventually be merged back into NSIS? We'd change to the fork,
and some time later, we'll have to change back. That's why I
personally won't put any effort into this.

However, if you feel differently, then just create a patch to
src/nsis.mk which uses that fork instead of the original NSIS.

Or, create a patch based on this project that changes an
original NSIS into a Unicode-NSIS, and provide this patch
as "src/nsis-unicode.patch".

Either way, I'd include that contribution into mingw-cross-env,
for as long as the fork remains up-to-date with the latest
NSIS version.
