Hello,

Are you able to indicate what size the installation would be WITH ALL 
the mentioned dependencies on various typical systems (MS Windows 32/64, 
Ubuntu, etc)?

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 -- 
http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/zlib.htm

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?
