Does that answer your question?

One thing I still don't understand though is how can you be sure that Custom Actions in your merge module will take place after standard install actions? Is there a convention for sequence numbers for standard install actions. I want to make sure that one of my merge module custom actions gets executed after the files for my merge module have been copied to their destination, how would I do this?
Thanks in advance for your advice Mr. Krueger.

To call your custom action after the files have been installed, base it on the InstallFiles action. The entries in your ModuleInstallExecuteSequence should look like this:
Action | Sequence | BaseAction | After | Condition
InstallFiles | 4000 | (NULL) | (NULL) | (NULL)
YourCustomAction | (NULL) | InstallFiles | 1 | Not Installed
Note: don't enter (NULL), and adjust the conditions as appropriate
