[Tinycc-devel] Windows distribution/installer

A few days ago, I started experimenting with just using NSIS to package up TinyCC as an installer for Windows, which worked out well.  It basically:

* Includes TinyCC Win-64 0.9.27  (Boy would a new release be nice!)
* Includes Win API Headers Full
* Optionally adds TCC (wherever it is installed) to the system path.

A few friends have tested it out and it seems to work for them.


A few comments that came up in discussion was:
1) Are there any issues with this?  Is anyone upset by the idea of a third-party installer?
2) Is it reasonable to have a non-project-sponsored-installer?  Would TCC be consider making a first party installer instead?
3) It would be really useful to include some sort of Make, even if primitive.
4) It would be nice to include some common single-file headers.

Since TCC is still a daily driver of mine for some in-work and many outside-of-work projects, I have a lot of interest in this.  I also do a lot of C stuff publicly, and people always want to know how to install a C environment.  I just wanted to get the conversation started, to see if anyone has any opinions.
