The SVG cairo stuff does build and work on Windows. I didn't include it
in the standard build of the installer since it depends on rather more C
libs and made the download a bit bigger than I'd have liked for such a
small addition.

So we could do another build with that in. Deploying Gtk+ apps on
windows is pretty easy, I'm going to write a bit about how to it some
time, but in the mean time here's one I prepared earlier:

Users don't need GHC or Gtk+ installed, you just bundle all the .dlls
and the download isn't too big I think (3.5M compressed installer for a
1Mb GHC-built .exe + all the Gtk+ dlls).

I've got pre-prepared bundles of gtk+ .dlls that you can use when
building an installer (and another bundle incuding the other header
files and stuff needed to build Gtk2Hs from source):
