Feel free to work on this. Consider that using hg may significantly
increase the amount of network traffic, since the repo(s) will contain
multiple versions, when only one specific version is needed.

When working on this, try to come up with other automated download
procedures, e.g. ones that do not involve revision control and have
support built into Windows.
