We're working slowly on these issues...
Unfortunately it's hard to live from just writing WPKG code and
answering wpkg-users list - in other words, it'll take some time, as
it's being worked on in spare time.
We plan to have these fixed somewhere at the beginning of August.

Right now, we used to store WPKG settings in binary form (sort of). This
means, that whenever we add new features, and settings.xml format
changes, these binary settings are incompatible.
So if you upgrade, you have to add a config file, and that from the
newest installer - it's not that pretty IMO.
Only from the version to be released in August, we will start to use
another way of storing data - so it will be no longer necessary to give
settings.xml generated by the newest installer. In fact, when we just
upgrade, and don't want to change any options, we won't have to give any
settings.xml file (now, it is mandatory).
