So, why should this fall on us?  I mean, is Emacs the only program
using gnutls?
If so, why?  what do other programs use?
If not, what do the other programs do about it?

Ah, so the problem is not only for Windows but also for Mac OS X?

As a user, I wouldn't like it for a program such as Emacs to decide it
will take over responsibility for a generic library used by other
programs, so I find the idea of distributing it via GNU ELPA rather odd.
