I'm supposed to be the author of this pile of code! :-/

Is it possible to use a demexp specific GTK and install a demexp needed
libraries/DLL into a sub-directory of demexp install directory? The main
idea for such a setup would be to disturb as less as possible user's
setting and removing demexp would equals to wiping the demexp install
dir. What do you think of it?

Except above question, that seems quite nice to me.
