Hmmm. Not quite. Firstly, I'm voting +1 on the basis that Windows
shouldn't hold up testing on Unix. Secondly, Windows has some strange
problems that will take some time to solve if I'm the only one working
on them (I move house next week, so I'll be even busier than usual), and
could do with some more eyes. Thirdly, I may finally be in a position to
actually install InstallShield, so I _may_ be able to roll a nice
installation package, and finally, if I can't, well, the most valuable
input at this stage would still be from people with compilers.

I think you may be right.
