I'd suggest that if you have a question or comment about setup it would
be a good idea to send a message with a specific subject rather than
trying to use this thread.  I just happened to read this because I
recognized your name as a non-kook.  If the other setup.exe maintainers
are at all similar to me they have given up on this particular thread
a while ago.
