Quite some users are afraid of installing an entire JVM.

The guys over at
http://sourceforge.net/projects/privatray are just
about to finish a similar effort to get gcj to produce
an executable.

Admitted, such an exe also might be large, i.e. about
1/2 size of the JRE...

    Sorry for the delay, I thought email notifications for
    sf.net tracker items were enabled, but turns out they
    were not.

    I don't use Windows, so whether this will be implemented or
    not depends on someone submitting patches/docs whatever is
    necessary to produce such a build.

    A requirement for shipping it from the Portecle site is also
    that the executable and the installer can be created on a
    Linux system or that someone creates it and is available to
    do so for future versions too.
