I haven't done any serious Windows programming in several years, but when I
did, building on Windows implicitly meant "with the MS toolchain" and
emphatically *not* with Cygwin, MinGW, etc.

Certainly, a Cygwin or MinGW port is a good step, but unless the Windows world
has changed, not having a Windows GODI in the sense I describe above will
be a hindrance to acceptance.
