Cool, and congrats. I hope the port isn't too painful.

Is that likely to be an issue? As the source changes will need to go 
into the main project tree, presumably anybody with the right compiler 
and tools could build a win32 binary. Of course, there is the 
qt/not-so-free-on-win32 issue.

Glad to hear you're getting something out of all this work on the 
financial side. It's always handy.
