I normally use 'win32' as a keyword in new trac entries, but otherwise
just use normal
conventions....just be sure to make it obvoius that you are working on
MS-windows, as most -devs aren't.

It was probably unnecessary to "start entirely from scratch", but if
that worked for you, then great!

The current plugins have been chosen as the "most likely to succeed"
whn building on Win32.   Trying others will almost definitely give you
issues, but please do try, and let us all know!  :-)
