I think that xemtex (my version) does not function like fptex or
Cygwin->tetex for Windows, which is why Dan liked it ->Win32.
I don't mean at a very general level, but like why Protex differs from 
Win32. Something must have been added to produce fptex functionality.
The user perceives what the program works like, not how many
files were carried over from xemtex and so evaluates the change.
I think Tomasz Luczak did the installer for Win32. Who modified
the functionality to appear more like fptex? Were fptex files used as a
basis, or were the files newly conceived? Outside of including Windvi.
