What isn't clear to me is whether this is a jhandles issue or an Octave issue.  Did the GPL issue affect the 3.0.1 build that was previously available for Octave, or v0.3.3 of jhandles?  More to my immediate concern, should I expect to be able to get an older version of jhandles working with Octave 3.2.4, or is it just broken on Windows altogether?

Thanks for all the info.

Well, the reason I'm confused is, why would a distribution problem on
Windows, due to restrictive licenses like the one that Microsoft's
implementation of the C++ stdlib uses, force the author to remove all
traces of jhandles from the web, not just for users of Windows?
