It's nice to hear that it is not too difficult to accomplish this.

But it's more important to avoid messages like this:

$ pdftex '\relax\pdfoutput=0  abc \bye'
This is pdfeTeXk, Version 3.141592-1.20a-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.3)
output format initialized to PDF

This might confuse people.  And I hope that someone can fix this
before TexLive is released.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
