You don't even imagine how many projects/devs are waiting for your
efforts! (Maybe even twice more than just 'gnucash' :-))

And I really would very much appreciate the effort, I know how
much non-trivial it is.  Five years ago I cross-compiled
guile-2.0.9 with all its GC bugs on windows and got a working
version of our tools only after 3-5 months.  Now, I'm trying to
repeat this effort with new versions, and see it again :-(

Thank you for your work!
