Anyone know how the GUI layer of the package manager is developed on
Windows? Is it a cross-platform toolkit like tk, wxWidgets, etc? Or is
it done in a Windows-only format?

| Uh, thanks, I think :P.  I'm certainly interested in adding it to
TCOBrowser, but unless someone wants to collaborate on development, it
just won't happen.  I have /no/ time to do this myself, especially since
I don't need the functionality (and TCOBrowser already lets you extract
the MikTeX files into ~/Library/texmf).
