In addition to this, we currently have no dependency on the Windows
platforms for the cygnus stuffs. APR, Subversion, and Friends build
without a hitch on an out-of-the-box Windows 95+ installation with the
MSVC 6.0. ActivePerl is a Beautiful Thing for such Windows machines,
and I was able to install (and run) Python just as easily on a box of
the above type.

If you can't give me a test suite in C, C++, Perl, Python, or some
other non-cygwin-requiring manifestation, *that* is a non-starter.
We already have a "__check__" project for the build system in Windows,
and it would be fairly painless, I imagine, to have that project run
perl or python scripts to do the testing.
