Hi Robert,

Building the installer is not an issue - it takes me about 5 minutes to
package a new release for Windows (Unix actually takes a lot longer). I
don't do snapshot builds in installer packages purely because I don't
want it to ever seem like they're supported for mass rollout or general
consumption.

Regards, Dave.
