How bout this... I have seen many "install" scripts that work in the
*NIX world AND Win*

Years ago I wrote one that had a sh version "./install" that worked on
*NIX and an ".\install.bat" that worked in the MS-* world. These are
easy enough to write and work appropriately in their respective cases.

If people want/need them and someone is willing to supply them why not?
Personally, I am not ready to do so, but that is jsut me...
