I've just learned of GNOME for cygwin
[http://cygnome2.sourceforge.net/], it looks like it has most of what is
required. Mozilla should build with cygwin, and with the patch from the
bug referenced above,so should gtkmozembed. It looks like a (cygwin)
windows version of Epiphany is just a matter of someone investing a few
days/nights to actually do it :)
