After looking at it, sleep call at the end of mkmak.bat is not needed, it is
in their because "mkmak.bat" used to be call from the main script, and since the
main script depends on the existence of *all* the makefiles, the sleep was to
insure that msdev was done exporting them before the script tried to call them.
(msdev runs asychronously while running that macro in command line mode)
I took it out because of the exit call that was in there (which Matthijs Laan pointed out).
Now that it works as intended, I can put the call the that script back in the main
build script -- bottom line is I would like for the user to have to only run one, single
script to do everything, as opposed to several scripts, remembering which order to call
them in, etc.
There is another new WSH script (enableOggMacro.js),
which if disabled, would mean there would have to be manual interaction with the UI
to enable the macro, something I was trying to avoid.

I could provide a 5 line C program which implements sleep, and is built
as the first step of the build process.

BTW, what about my proposed change to registry.h?
