Re: no byte-compilation in windows release



Windows will need something analogous to the linux script program to be 
turned on first by any bat file that compiles emacspeakwin.  Also, an 
e-mail with a successful compile and install is valuable as well as an 
e-mail with errors.  A reasonable going assumption will be that people 
installing this kind of package for the first time will have none of the 
prerequisite software so if a bat file can go get it and install it 
first everybody probably gets that much closer to successful installs.  
One package to get for windows maybe first if it's not on the computer 
would probably be wget for windows since that can be used to download 
any missing prerequisites later.
