Wow, is this really a threat to block or revert changes to the Emacs

Regardless of the outcome of this discussion, I hope everyone realizes that the presence and adequate functioning of Emacs ports to proprietary operating systems is beneficial to GNU/Linux users as well, since it increases the size of the ecosystem.

For instance, the maintainer of what currently seems to be the best hope for a Java editing environment (malabar-mode) uses Windows.

Yours truly has spent quite a bit of time on Windows as well. Had Emacs port not been available then, I'd probably have ended up not using it at all in the end.

to help polish up the MS-Windows code?

It seems to me that the goal is to help keep it up-to-date.

(Sorry for butting in).
