Cool !  Let me know when it passes - will update the zim website to link it.

Btw. trying to test on windows. Running from source but I run into the
problem that since my python is also installed without admin rights,
windows does not know how to run the source. But I have a similar problem
with the installed zim.exe - it is not in the path, so the extension does
not find it.

Maybe have the configuration point to a non-standard location and use the
zim.py or zim.exe found in that location ?  (In that case rename "run from
source" into something like "run from alternative location")
