Well have fun guys doign stuff like porting imlib and stuff to win32
cause imlib is unix-centric design and I don't feel like wasting my
time helping anyone port it to win32 - cause gnome needs it to create
icons and do image stuff...
basically it will be a complete waste of time that could be much more
usefully spent working on gnome and imporving it becuase linux is goign
to hit your desktop sonner than anyone probabyl has ever thought it
could - companies are taking linux seriously these days.
please do something usefulk and work on improving gnome and gtk and
apps etc instead of just adding lots of #ifdef __WIN32's to the code.
