Since bzr 2.1 is supposed to be a stable release that will be supported
for at least 6 - 12 months I wouldn't recommend installing the release
candidate of a library. Much better to stick with known, stable code and
move to the new versions in the following beta so we get 6 months to
iron out any problems.

Are there really any Windows devs who don't have this installed already?
A lot of stuff gets bundled in the bzr Windows installer and I'd rather
not see the download size go up if it's not vital.
