 Replying to [comment:27 hellik]:
 > recent pdal versions (pdal-1.7.2) are only available in 64bit OSGeo4W.

 unfortunately `pdal` has a lot of dependencies:

 It will enlarge standalone binaries significantly (especially Python3).
 Would be nice to split OSGeo4W packages into `pdal` and `python3-pdal`.
