Let's go ahead and fixing issue #2 for 2.066. We will need to produce 
another RC anyway: there are at least three other issues that must be 
addressed and tested prior to the final release.

As for issue #1, I have no problems creating the installers as outlined 
below. I'll build and have them uploaded when I prepare RC2. My problem 
will stem from knowing when to build D1 in the future because it never 
really crosses my mind as something that needs to be done. But I'm sure 
Walter or someone else will alert me when it's necessary to do so.
