You would need a copy of Wise, and would be signing up to "deal with"
installer bug reports, feature requests, random whining, and changes to the
installer to cope with changes in the set of files we need to install (the
Unix-heads routinely make changes that break the Windows installer, and the
latter needs to be taught about the changes the former make -- no file gets
installed unless the installer is told about it).  But if you had to ask,
you don't want to volunteer <wink>.
