I think it's still IBurnBackendExtension and I agree, it should have a WixOutput.
The WixOutput includes both the tuples and the rows, so a single object should suffice if there's an easy way to get the particular data you want. (And maybe we'll come up with a reason to add more...?)

Actually, it looks like I didn't translate this code from v3 correctly.
This should be an IBurnBackendExtension, whose PostBackendBind doesn't even provide the wixout. Or is there a different interface in the new Bundle backend that this should be implementing?
I think it would be nice
if IWindowsInstallerBackendBinderExtension.PostBackendBind provided the WindowsInstallerData as an additional parameter.
