	Sounds like an exciting opportunity to learn I think; though of course
you'd really need a windows build to be able to test your changes.
Ultimately, if you research a single problem enough - it is easy to
collect the skills to hack on and improve almost anything: though it
clearly takes time, and writing of a lot of notes.

	Given that we have to have as simple and repeatable build as possible,
would you still be interested in working on this ? :-)
