OK, so I can build a setup.exe that does what I want by retreiving HEAD
then applying the patches in order and recompiling.

So I really don't need to do anything that is not already done, which
is good because it stops this part of the thread for now :-)

The other part of the thread deals with when the "new" setup.exe should
be released, with what feature set, and whether to backport the changes.

Maybe that should be a separate thread now :-)

And I support Brian's thoughts re getting an RC out if there are
significant changes to setup.exe - in particular the totally
new use-case of command line package specification.

Cheers, Ralph
