I'd rather that the Windows-centric guys on the list put their time 
into good Windows support for Ocaml, rather than continually harping at 
people like me, who couldn't give a rat's patootie whether the existing 
level of support for Windows improves any time soon.

I haven't ported my Cf library to Windows because I don't have a 
Windows box and I'm not a Windows developer.  I put forward a call for 
Windows-centric guys on this list over a year ago to help me get my 
library ported and compiling under Microsoft Visual-C with the straight 
Windows Ocaml port.  I have had not a single ping on the subject.  It's 
like they don't even notice, and frankly— it's not like it really bugs 
me.  It just tells me that Windows-centric guys don't like my code.  
That's fine.  I don't like theirs all that much either.

Meanwhile, not a week goes by on this list without some Windows-centric 
guy complaining about the vacuum of Windows support for Ocaml.  I'm 
starting to believe the problem is that Windows-centric guys are lazy 
bums who whine too much about what other people choose to do with their 
time when they should be spending their own time coding on things that 
are important to them.
