I'm not happy with the instructions there in the Zim wiki. It's great that Nathan wrote up that mailing list post and/or the wiki page as a workaround for the problem, but I'm not comfortable integrating that into the official Windows build process.
1. It references a Windows Python+binary package for PyGTKSpell hosted rather informally by the GRAMPS project. I would prefer to depend on a build-from-source recipe than the corner of another project's support wiki which may disappear. 2. The GRAMPS Python package for PyGTKSpell is for Python 2.6, which was end-of-lifed a year ago. I build with Python 2.7 only. Maybe I can get to doing this right for the next Zim release. We'll see. A higher priority for me is to stop using Py2exe and switch to cx_Freeze or PyInstaller. I want to start the build process from scratch, using either a fresh virtualenv or a fresh VM, installing all possible dependencies using only pip, and then filling in other dependencies -- and finally using one of the newer Windows exe builders. This may or may not make it easier to solve the problem of how to include PyGTKSpell. (In fact when I was simply exploring my options tonight, the PyInstaller web site was borked. Is this project still alive? I couldn't get past the home page earlier, and now the home page won't load.)

I love Zim but that is a real downer to have missing. If there is not, could anyone point me in the right direction for what might work so I could try myself?
