Note that this is an SVN snapshot build which already claims to be
0.7.2, so there are no guarantees whether the files produced by this
windows version of beast work on any other beast.

Hm, what are the chances of releaseing ALPHA 0.7.2 win32 packages
(ZIP) of beast once the real 0.7.2 is out? Relocatability, scheme
support, etc aren't too bad for an alpha release (I'd recon the
browser URLs have to work though, to lead on people when they
have trouble).
