Uhm... Huh? How is that an argument? My runtime package has always
contained such a DLL, but certainly not the headers. I will NOT put such
a stupid warning into my runtime package because it is just that, a
runtime package.

The libebml downloads we offer on the other hand do NOT contain a
DLL. So I don't see your point that an existing DLL might confuse
someone... because there ain't one in the official lib* downloads.

That was my intention, yes. Sad but true.

(Maybe not so sad. Mingw is hardly the most convenient programming
environment on Windows.)

unconstitutional too, since clearly it de-emphasizes the commercial
nature of normal human interaction, and probably is a major impediment
to the commercial growth of prostitution. - Linus Torvalds
