And this is (for more casual deployments) a feature that cannot be 
over-praised. CEAN is much better than the "standard" Erlang install 
process, but the issue still is that it is a variety of executables, 
preset directory structure, and a bunch of beam files. SAE was cool 
because there was simply the exe, any required DLL's, and a single zip 
of compiled beam files.

Still the "minimal build" method CEAN is based around is pretty useful 
and is somewhat like Wings3D (which installs pretty easily and cleanly).
