 If it did before, it won't now, because the windows directory has been
 removed by #1282.

 After much trial and error, I found the following recipe instead. First
 apply attachment:bb-freeze.darcs.patch to a checkout of trunk. Then from a
 cygwin prompt:
 make clean
 python setup.py build
 sed 's/\\r//' <src/allmydata/_version.py >_version.new
 mv -f _version.new src/allmydata/_version.py
 export PYTHONPATH=support/Lib/site-packages
 bb-freeze windows/tahoe.py

 (cygwin is not essential, but we need sed to convert the CRLF line endings
 in _version.py, otherwise the compiler invoked by bb-freeze will fail to
 compile it. I don't know why it is so picky.)

 The resulting {{{dist\tahoe.exe}}} has a bug that causes its argv array to
 be shifted, dropping {{{sys.argv[0]}}}. You can work around this by giving
 'tahoe' as a dummy first argument.

 I haven't tested it much, but it can run a functioning gateway node to the
 pubgrid, and list the public directory using the CLI. Unicode arguments
 and output even work!
