Hi Craig R.,
to avoid any misunderstandings: I'm not interested in a Windows port at
all. More over, I would consider it a terrible waste of time and
ressorces, if one of the core devs  started to work on such a port now.
What I was thinking of, was, that if anyone on the list should be
interested in diving in and starting looking into this issue, there is
at least from now on a clear perspective for distributing this port
legally, once it is done.
