What will have to happen for the Win32 port to be declared "official"?
Known bugs that are fixable should be fixed, but what about those very
X11-ish features that aren't currently implemented at all, or just

To implement tiles and stipples completely and correctly, especially
so that it works also on Win9x/Me, you need some pretty hairy
code. For instance arcs have to be drawn "manually", as the linux-fb
backend does, because the Arc() function is not supported inside path
brackets on Win9x/Me. (Path brackets is the GDI concept that could be
used to implement tiles and stipples most straightforwardedly, I
think. It is currently used for GDK_OPAQUE_STIPPLED rectangles,
polygons and segments.)

Multi-threaded GDK use? Is that a must?

Or can it be declared official if simply some reasonable number of
non-trivial apps work OK with it?
