Can SwishCtl be run by a normal user instead of an Administrator?  One
of the registry problems was that the DLL had to be registered by an
Administrator before it could be run.

Adding ASP support and dropping the ATL requirement sound like great
improvements.  I'll see about getting those changes integrated.

I think the ATL dependency is why I couldn't build using the MinGW32
compiler.  Perhaps I'll be able to provide SwishCtl along with the
Windows builds again.
