We can do something like this, but it might be nice for the Windows
binary to follow the .deb -- both images are shipped with a toggling
mechanism in the shell script wrapper.  In fact, we might want to
build this 'build behavior' into the main makefiles -- right now
Debian does it privately in debian/rules.  There seem to be some
people who like the trad image.  Since we have it, and it works with a
long history, it might be an advantage to continue to offer it.
Default should go to ansi, of course, at some point.

Take care,
