    There is a utility called MSI2XML which can convert an MSI into an XML script. Since WSI files have the same structure as MSI files but with nothing in the media table and internal cab streams, you could use the same utility on your project files.
    Whether the XML output is wix compatible you would have to ascertain for yourself.

    Compile the wise project to an MSI, then use the dark.exe tool (which comes with the wix binaries) to convert the MSI to wix source file(s).
