Can't we change the installation script instead ?
Such that on W32 systems, rcs2log is installed as rcs2log.sh
and then we install a rcs2log.bat wrapper ?
This way the VC code does not need to know whether rcs2log is implemented
as an sh script or anything else (it really doesn't need to know: I played
with the code and didn't know until now that it was an sh script rather
than a binary or a perl script).
