The first part (detecting when a file of a certain type or in a certain
location gets installed) was never in question.  But you also need to
ensure that the package that contains the autorun script is actually
installed at the most recent version.  At least that is the behaviour
that autodep+upset does produce and my assumption is that any
integration into setup.exe needs to keep it that way.

I don't think I talked about deinstallation.  In any case it wouldn't
matter for autodep; at least not if it continues to work like it already

Sure, but do you have a suggestion on exactly how?  Whatever library
gets chosen it would need to be linked into the executable.

Autodep is used three times (if I counted correctly) in the current
distribution.  One is for cygwin, which we don't really need it since it
is already taken care of in a different way in setup.exe.  The other two
are for _autorebase and _update_info.  Of these, one regex matches on
files having certain extensions and the other matches on files installed
into directories having certain path prefixes.  So having a way to
specify these two cases without using a regex would satisfy the current
uses of autodep — or am I missing something?
