I will mention it in the README for the next release. As it happens the
new bootstrap.sh also works if you've got mingw/cygwin and wget/curl.

I did not have access to a Windows machine at the time I made the
previous release, so the cabal.exe was not available at the time. Also
it was a bit experimental at the time, not many people had tested it on
