Yes, a README.Windows would be most welcome. Re. the wget point I think 
this should be deprecated back in favour of urllib (which ships with 
python). The reason wget was used was obscure/weird breakage of urllib 
when interacting with the squid proxies used by wikimedia which I 
discovered when downloading the encyclopaedia britannica stuff (I don't 
know whether this is now fixed).
