The web site is a great idea, thanks. Maybe I will get to that, but I
have so much other things on my TODO list.. The source code of the
compiler can be downloaded, so anyone is free to tinker with it.

The problem of making a Windows executable is that the compiler itself
makes Windows executables, and therein lies the problem. It would be
nice if somebody would come up with a complete package, because I have
no access to Windows nor would I know how to approach that..
