I has read also the mail from Tor Lillqvist.
My experience on Windows are small.

I hope that a stable GTK+ for Win32
make it possible to maintain an official installer for Windows.

Enhance the GTK+ support for Visual Studio
is also an importing point for me.
pkg-config is fine on Linux/Unix but not practical to work with VS.
On Linux/Windows I use MPC.
There is a small articel:
Sorry this is not translated to english in the moment.

An official GTK+ installer is a nice idea.
But it should contain the whole GTK+ family with glade, libglade,
libglademm and GTKmm.

To maintain such a project it need automated builds and testing.

Tor Lillqvist has written about the problems with differend version of
GTK+ on Win32. Could be the installation to differend directories and
a program loader a solution? The program loader set the enviroment
for the GTK+ program an start it.
