Yes, this is true.

My plan for the next pre-test is to turn these around. So
"emacs-$version.zip" will contain all the dependencies while
"emacs-$version-no-deps.zip" will not. Then people who don't know what
to choose will get bells and whistles by default.

It would be quite nice to add a "runemacs.bat" file at top level also, I
think, but it's probably too late in the release cycle for this.
