The current idutils.el does not contain much. It is just a
define-compilation-mode (which adds nothing but adds one keyword) and
a a command gid which just does compilation-start (and does some
things that belongs to define-compile-command).

But since Eli says idutils are good (and I do not doubt that) I
started looking at it. I thought there was no binary download (it is
not mentioned on the GNU Id Utils home page at all), but there is one
in gnuwin32.

I installed that and tried it. However it either crashes or says
something like this

  C:\>mkid -o OUTFILE DIR
  mkid: can't get working directory: Permission denied

Eli, can you tell me what binary you are using and how you run mkid?
