Re: GNOME Games and MS Windows

One of the bigger problems in the past was gconf. GSettings should
work on windows so that is no longer a problem.

The embedded session support was dropped in 3.3.4.
libgames-support/eggsmclient-win32.c was amongst that. Session support
is being implemented in GtkApplication so we can expect a cross
platform solution for that.

I suspect that using the new resources work in glib/gtk will make
deploying on windows easier as well.
