Done and done:
CVS + "For the curious" patch + Two subsequent patches from Michael Chase ==
Above with all inlines "un-inlined" == 344576 bytes.
So a bit over 11KB saved. In my judgement that's enough to warrant removing the
inlines; if string-handling speed is a significant factor for setup.exe I'd say
there's something wrong somewhere that no amount of inlines could remedy.
