I encountered something like this on a previous project - although I
never tried it myself, the other developers were quite keen on it.
I've also worked extensively with the reSIProcate stack, which runs on
quite a few platforms, including Windows. Although my own contributions
were only ever developed and tested on Linux, I do know of people
successfully using the same code on the Windows platform. Maybe we can
find some ideas there to help with portability.

Personally, I believe the collaborative open-source approach is a very
productive one, you won't have to look far to find other projects I have
worked with using this approach. Having just moved to a new job, I am
just familiarising myself with my employer's policies on such things
before I send anything out to the group.
