A few more notes:

mingw contains ddk bindings. You should be able to build a windows
driver with that. Not sure about Vista though. 

Also, if you resurrect the PA port to Windows, I think it would be
good to base your work on git master -- not the released
versions. Also, I'd love to integrate those portability patches
eventually and I'd like to keep eye on what's going on, so may I
kindly request an accesible git repo at least for the porting stuff?
gitorious is your friend!
