Windows is supported in code (as you saw by compiling it), the only issue is
with build system - we were talking about whether we can adapt the build

we will provide only binary gem for windows (as majority of ruby users on
windows will be using the one-click ruby installer and won't have installed
any development tools needed to compile C code). Alain is looking into this
