Sounds like YAGNI. In the years I did the Windows installer, nobody asked
for compilation. I haven't seen anyone here ask for it either, just a few
people saying they think other people might want it. Since I wasn't one of
them, you're going to have to ask someone who thinks they can channel these
oddly unassertive users <wink>.
