You might have a point there. It's a proprietary format, requiring
proprietary build tools, and, as I remember it, mostly motivated by
deficiencies of a proprietary file system (the minimum file size on
VFAT combined with a bazillion little HTML files). However, those who
actually understand the Windows build probably knows better...
