Binaries download

Think it was me that raised this issue but from the other angle - that 
if Windows binaries were provided, they would be useless for 99% of us. 
The problem is taglib is a library (and a C++ one at that) and therefore 
it and the executable (or other libs) are inherently tied to the runtime 
libraries shipped with the compiler. This means that if you built the 
library with MS-VS 2008 (and not just that but a specific release of 
2008) you need to build your executable with that same compiler. If you
try and link it with an exe say built with VS-2005 it won't work.

So unless someone when to the effort of producing binaries for every 
compiler combination.....
