Totally agree, end-user need a single .exe or single .app/dmg with a

TorChat buildsystem ? https://github.com/prof7bit/TorChat/issues/16

Basically you already made your own cross-platform hacks for the
It maybe very valuable to switch to APAF, also to leverage your
knowledge but rationalizing what could be the future of an anonymous
application ecosystem.

APAF is at http://github.com/mmaker/APAF and will be used by other
