I think that occurred right about the same time that Wise donated the
more up to date version of their package.  Thus the existing Python
installer no longer generated (ignoreable) errors under NT, for
example, and was brought up to date presentation wise, so that pretty
much resolved the complaints.  At least that definitely did it for me,
and I had been looking at finishing the file at the time.
