Is setup.xml the best way to implement the setup experience?

When setting up my own application, what are my options for creating a "setup experience". Will Setup.xml meet all my needs? Are there other options for creating setup workflows?

For the Web Intelligence app, setup.xml was not the best route to take.

See http://dev.splunk.com/view/SP-CAAADS3 for the implementation details.

There is information about this in the Developer Manual, see specifically http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/AdvancedDev/SetupApp. You use setup.xml to set the initial values for your setup screen, then use the REST API to update your configuration based on those inputs entered in setup.

This is correct, but setup.xml can have some very limited functionality, has anyone done anything else to increase the functionality in a setup experience?
