    Well, actually, we *did* release it - strictly 1.3b3, which means
    beta, which means warts like excluded files that need to be
    separately installed are acceptable.

    For a final 1.3, d'accord.  For a beta, I don't see it as being a
    problem.  Ben just didn't have the time to build all that stuff into
    the IS package, and we couldn't release 1.3b3 without a Win32
    version, so we've got a UNIX source dist (no binaries) and a Win32
    two-part install.  The Win32 piece will install and work just fine
    without the additional /icons/ and /htdocs/ trees; they're just
    amenities to make it complete.

    Yes indeed - but for 1.3b4 or later.
