That's great! Thanks for the effort on getting it working.

*Please* don't release a snapshot of CVS -- those are not tested well
enough for general use, and it'd mess up bug tracking horribly. If you
don't want to want for 0.92, certainly make it a new Windows release of
0.91. It'd be great to have those problems out (though we don't seem to be
getting too many reports on them).
