Bug#441846: please hook win32-loader in autorun.inf

Package: debian-cd
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

As of 0.6.0~pre3, win32-loader checks for README.html when running.  If
found, it will:

  - Minimize itself.
  - Open README.html with the system's default browser.

Asides from the ability to continue installation using it, this makes two
improvements in how README.html itself is handled:

  - No ugly DOS window.
  - Allows for l10n (if README.$lang.html is found it'll take preference,
    where $lang is an iso-639 code).

I think this makes it suitable for being run by autorun.inf directly.  See
attached patch.
