I started to look at building a fresh install package for Windows, and
started down the road of building the dependencies for windows first,
hence the new build of AtomicParsley.

The thing I was scratching my head about and wondering how best to
solve was the eternal problem of updating things for windows.  For
Ubuntu, it's easy - I just maintain a package archive and it just
works.  for windows I contemplated building something separate to do
the updates, but then I changed jobs and started to work for a living
and ran out of time.

I'm happy to help maintain the windows version (though I don't use
get_iplayer on windows either), but can't commit a great deal of time
to it.  It might be better if I commit to maintain windows builds of
AtomicParsley (not that it's very hard...).  Platforms I *am*
interested in maintaining are ubuntu and the d-link dns-323 NAS.
