Uh, I asked whether I understand correctly.  I did not say that I
_did_ understand correctly or tested anything.

Where would I be able to download this binary?

I'll probably not be able to test this before Friday on a Windows test
system (tomorrow is a local holiday) and before Monday on the
production system.  So if anybody has a good suggestion for a simple
enough test setup that would enable Akira to test drive the executable
without putting me in the feedback loop, this would make things move
somewhat faster.
