Yes, it would - but then people would complain about numpy being slow,
etc... because average users would install the msi, ask the difference
with the superpack, etc... I may be misguided, but I make a strong
difference between making a msi available as in the case of win64
installers, and making it possible for a user to extract the msi from
the superpack. The later inherently filters people who don't like to
bother with "details" such as CPU support.

The superpack solved almost all issues we had on windows, and I would
prefer keeping it that way.
