The command-line client works well as far as I know. The problem is that 
it's no more user-friendly than the Unix version, i.e. not really what 
Windows end users might expect. Work on the GUI client is going nowhere 
fast at the moment as I just don't have time for it.

I'd recommend that you try the standard Windows client build and see if it 
meets your needs, or if not, let us know what you need.

Cheers, Chris.
