  A fair point, considering our resource limitations.  Ok then: my first
order of business will be getting the verification release out the door.
This needs me to do two things: update the various docs that describe
setup.exe, and figure out how to do the code-signing bit.  (Which probably
means us using a self-signed cert to get started with, and seeing if we can
get a proper cert later...  more on this when I've researched it a bit

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
