I know I would love to see a precompiled windows version of postgresql
that didn't require the installer. Something like a zip file that
contains everything under the "configure --prefix" directory. That way
it would be very easy for me to keep different versions on my machine
for testing purposes. It also allows a non-privlidged user to install
postgresql on Windows (with-out having to compile by hand) which is
something the project has always strived for.
Any reason this can't happen?
