Nah, I'm just lazy :) I don't use Windows much...

Well, we need to go by something. A full dump of the stuff returned by
GetVersionEx is a must. Also, for eash of the DLLs we care about, would
be nice to have some info in case we find failures we can't explain

Maybe they do, but we still unpack some files, we should just erase the
entire temp dir we create, unless we're told not to do so. It's just
good manners :)

Yes, it would be nice to have more frequent releases, but we would have
trouble labeling them...unless we stick to the build date. But in that
case, we have to have a well understood convention on what YYYYMMDD
means in terms of time, and we have to stick to it (well, the person
building this should). Any takers?
