'setup.exe' because there hasn't been a volunteer contributor for them.
If you're interested in contributing something, see the link below:
OK, the update of setup is not supported, but setup DOES in fact
allow fully command line based operation. I know because I moaned
about it, collected and tested patches, and even contributed a minor
fix to the option parsing.
That's true but I believe the OP was lamenting that there wasn't a
version that didn't still have the GUI even when run from the command
line. If I'm wrong, then I'm sure you've made the OP's day. :-)
