Either way, there would still be problems.  I think that they are mainly because
of Michael's white space fixes.

I sometimes wish that we had a C/C++ aware version of patch.

I've included a new patch below.  I took another stab at this and found that I'd
wiped out a huge chunk of a function.  setup.exe seems to work much better now.

I've also included a setup.ini with categories.  I haven't added dependencies yet.

I'm thinking that we should just nuke the "latest" and "contrib" directories and
create directories based on the name of the categories.
