[wix-users] Forcing a reboot after installing an MSI from a Bundle

More info: The MSI already the following in it.  

      <ScheduleReboot After="InstallFinalize"/>

When you run the MSI directly, it reboots as requested.  When you run it
from within a Bundle, the reboot request is saved for later.   I need it to
happen at once, and for the installer to continue after the reboot.

I find information online about how to force a reboot after an <ExePackage>
executes, but nothing about how to force an immediate reboot if an
<MsiPackage> requests it.  I have a situation where a prerequisite package
required for certain machines requires a reboot afterwards.  If that reboot
does not happen, then other things (service starts, mainly) will blow up
later in the installation.

Any ideas?
