Re: setup.exe is too small

And, different agendas as well. No one in free software has to work on
things that they don't want to work on.
And, the theory that "You know how to do it. You're doing all this
other stuff, why don't you do this too?" doesn't really sound right to me.
Chris do not view this as a justification for a "consumer" to demand
that a "producer" work for him. Rather I was trying to point out why a
"consumer" or a "semi-hacker" for that matter, might be reluctanct to
dive into a dev/patch project that they might view "over there head".
IOW I don't think that just because it's Open Source and you *can* fix
it yourself, that a flippant "Fix it yourself!" response is warranted.
Besides, I've given you the "If you don't like the software then return
it" to add to your meanness arsenal! :-)
Of course, your own "PGA" phrase is a more gentle way of saying "Fix It
Yourself!". (Hey should we add FIY! to the acronym list? :-)
