That is not saying much, IMO. If you put package X on a site, and Y,
described as "X with all bells and whistles for Windows", is not hard
to see why people would download Y even before knowing whether X is
good enough for them.

You need to get the external tools and set them up to to get the most
out of Emacs. Including a basic subset of them in a distribution is
therefore useful in my opinion. Or having that as a separate distribution.

Most users of Emacs are programmers; a pointer to the place to
download the tools would surely be enough. But that's not what I was
talking about. There's no need to patch Emacs for that.
