I'd be happy if we could just improve it to the point where I could run
automated builds anywhere.

I'm not happy with the way the build works right now. I cobbled it together
using my basic understanding of Windows packaging and lesser understanding
of the Python setup process and GTK. Can anyone provide any assistance?

The biggest issue I see is that in order to just get the job done and make
it reliable, I had to include all of GTK in Zim's executable folder. Is
there a "right" way to install GTK in Windows... in a common location iff it
is not found? Can an application installer fetch the GTK tarball from the
network so as not to include it in the original download?

Can I / should I be using Python's installer infrastructure instead of my
existing NSIS script for Zim?
