In practice it still has it for the other platforms, cause deken still
carries the previous packages. I agree though that it'd be better to just
disable it for windows in the code, cause then the same package version
could be updated for all platforms in deken, keeping them in sync with the
same build version - and update the help file to say this was removed for
the windows version because of a bug.

Well, as many may know, me derek and matt have been working on our cyclone
repo (though there's nothing released so far) and we're up for fixing this
for windows. We might need help though.

I also think it is important to keep it for this reason, but there's still
another one. Pd-L2ork and Purr Data have this version of the object and I
believe the plan is to keep it (fix it) and make it available for windows
distributions with Purr Data. So it's nice and reasonable that the cyclone
also has it.
