As I see, the main problem is to have new binaries for Windows (from
so unix oriented web2c sources).
The installer can be made by some new people (Pawel Jackowski, Bob 
Margolis, perhaps Klaus Hoeppner).
Anyway, after my investigation, people still wait and need TL (web2c
compatible) also for Windows.
