Well, we do want to get less, not more of those. :)

I like cookies.
Now, how often ARE you going to update this? Does this need a new
version with every d-i release? That would be bad.
Or just every other century?

If its more than *few* times a year we can think of an autobyhand way
for it, but if its seldomly...
Keep in mind, it will be attached to the win32-loader package, so with
each upload the byhand will be there.

Also, please not only provide a .exe, but also a .txt with the same
basename, explaining what it is.

My first contact with Linux was with SuSE 6.3. A friend of mine
installed it on my pc, and just take me a couple of hours to reinstall
Windows on it.
