Re: Meld Windows Installer

I asked Perica (the maintainer of Portable Python) about the possibility of adding PyGtkSourceView.  He said to add it to uservoice and if it gets enough votes he'll put it in.  So I added it as a suggestion:  I also asked him about when the source for Portable Python would be available.  He said he's working on moving it all to GitHub.

Looks good! That page is just a wiki, so please feel free to add it yourself.

I'm really not sure how hard the all-in-one installer would be to
update, but I had a look at Portable Python, and... yeah. I had hoped
that we might be able to modify it to create a single bundled
installer, but it turns out that none of the Portable Python source is
actually available.
