It's great that you've taken on to do this work, many thanks! I've
done some work on windows builds myself, and in fact there's more
people interested than it might appear so feel free to bring issues up
on this list. The more we coordinate our effort the better.

You can get the Visual C++ toolchain for free from the Windows SDK,
if you're interested in making these. Generating the import libs for
VC is super easy, you just need the .def file for the DLL (and not
even the actual DLL).

I'm sure there is, I don't know who is the person to give you access

That's a whole new can of worms :) I share the dream that one day it
would be great to use the mingw cross compiler and an automated build
service but I think it's important to get native builds working more
reliably to begin with ..
Again, props for being a man of action
