Are you able to indicate what size the installation would be WITH ALL
the mentioned dependencies on various typical systems (MS Windows 32/64,
Saying something is only 12-13 MB in size is one thing but noting that
you need 283MB+* of other packages means that in order to get this
package to work on another machine you would need to install more than a
12-13MB executable, particularly on a Windows machine.
OpenSSL on Windows 20MB -- http://slproweb.com/products
zlib binary on Windows 0.012MB-- /Win32OpenSSL.html --
SQLite binary for Windows 262.59 MB -- http://www.sqlite.org/download.html/
BZip tarball 0.75 MB -- http://www.bzip.org/downloads.html
Also, do you have a page that indicates what standard libraries have
been included? How can someone tell whether they would need to
distribute or include any additional modules to get a script to work?
