Yes, lots of objections ... it took me quite a while to figure out how
to find ML, etc., and this works just great with our (still-default)
MSVC6 -- which doesn't come with ML -- and the free ML clone you can get
from the 'net.

If you want to avoid using ML, add an option to gen-make.py (and change
the default to not search for ML, for all I care) -- don't just rip out
code because it doesn't suite your particular setup.

Huh, I remember I used to wish I could rip out Unix-specific code out of
Subversion, to make porting to Windows easier. :)
