Yup, we know it and want to rectify it, but were unable to get it done 
for this release. 

Someone has already started working on a package, but from my 
experience binary packaging is not something which can be done 
haphazardly. A fair amount of testing needs to be done to be sure 
they work correctly *and* safely. Lord knows I have cursed more than 
a few poorly done Windows installs. ;-)
