For full usage:
Previously the project used the Windows Script Host
cscript.exe as its runtime. Over time this was proving to be diffcult to support as it was essentially using the browser-based version of less.js and stubbing out objects like
document to mimic the browser environment. This version is still available in the windows-script-host branch.
