I'll be working on it tomorrow full time. So expect some signs of life 
;) And all the stuff I want to add will be in the /win32 dir that I will 
maintain for each release (if you agree).

That's still one possibility. Because anyway I think I will have to make 
a .zip of the sources if you don't want the pre-generated files in your 
CVS for win32 (.h.win32 and .c.win32 files and the .def files).

Yes, the only problem here is that everyone is waiting to be able to get 
their (dirty) hands on some working code with the tools we love to use.
