No, that should be fine for the moment :-) Sadly the computer I use to
test the windows build and work on it is currently in bad shape. I
will try to fix tonight and land your patch. If I can't do that
tonight it will have to wait for next week. If that happen, you better
at least open a task and assign it to me so I won't forget you.

Yes, I gave a quick look at it and it will be a very valuable solution
as we can't use DirectX due to the fact we expose a GL API as part of
Evas. No time has been given on implementing a backend using it, but
if you are willing to do it, I can help you there and guide you on
what need to be done.
It is great to see someone trying to help on the windows portability !
Thanks a lot even if it is just a small patch,
