Yes, it was Windows I was particularly keen to ensure we included.

I suppose it depends how easy it is to build. If people have to mess
about downloading stuff that isn't generally part of a standard distro
then it would be better I think to provide a binary. I haven't built
it for a while on linux so I'll leave it to others to judge whether
that is a concern now (I know it certainly used to be!). NB standard
distro here means widely used versions, not fedora core 350 pre-alpha.
