It was working for me, AFAIK, with a gcc-3.0 toolchain on Linux (Debian
and Mandrake), but have it working on Windows is a pretty important
goal, which we haven't tested yet.

My only fear is, since there isn't any released tarball of it yet, that
v2 would be a moving target, making it hard to use it for development.
but since "you strongly suggest" it, it probably means that grabbing it
from cvs will be stable enough :-)

I'll try it tonight

Ideas don't stay in some minds very long because they don't like
