I could. But it was not my goal. My goal was to have a port as native as 
possible with the usual development tools that most Windows coders use, 
ie the tools from Microsoft. None of us (Matroska team) want to use gcc 
under Windows because it lacks a good debugger/IDE... But don't worry, 
the code hasn't changed a lot.
