Discontinuing Windows Builds

I have decided to stop releasing and distributing Windows binaries of Gnumeric.

The main reason is that I am uncomfortable with crash reports I see --
crashes that are unlikely to be the fault of Gnumeric, but rather
something in Gtk+ and lower.  I haven't observed these crashes myself
(not that I use the Windows builds much) thus making it very hard for
me to debug.

A side reason is that no-one in the Windows world has ever stepped
forward with skill and time.  I really have very little out of
creating these binaries, so unless it mostly can take care of itself
then I am not terribly interested.

Volunteers are welcome to pick up where I left it.  All source code
and build scripts needed are in the git repository.  This is not for
the faint of heart.
