python is actually in there. (aside from msvc redistributable package)
15 of the 20 mb are dlls from the dependencies.

the correct answer is. I come from a linux background thinking that
setting the PATH is the greatest thing ever.
Do i install everything in system32 and not even set the paths? Should
there be a batch script installed to the start menu that sets the path
and then executes grc? Some burdens are easier for me to pass unto the

necessary? Some experts say otherwise.
So I've largely just been glancing over this email thread, so I might not have all the facts. But this email between Marcus and Josh has caught my attention.
Josh, is the Windows build that's being discussed here based on your cmake branch? I'm wondering how easily you've found it to keep it up to date with the rest of the changes in GNU Radio master? I imagine it's not terribly difficult for most things, but possibly that my latest changes to gr-qtgui might have been a bit more challenging since the directory structure was changed.
It also seems like you're working out the last bugs in the installation process, now, too, and have been making gains with your installer (going towards the mega-installer). I'm just throwing this out there to see what people think, but I'm thinking we should host this on the main GNU Radio website, too. Also, we can probably clean up the Windows build section of the Wiki based on your work.
