Yes, that is how :)

I started a Win32 port when I had a system here running Win95+VisualC and
the GNUWin32 stuff (I was working on getting it to compile in both).
However, the guy left and I havn't had the desire/drive to install the
same setup and work on it.  I do have Win95/Visual C nestled on a small
partition of my drive at home, eventually I'll get to it..  If you want,
compile it up and send me a log of all the errors--I can probably fix them
and send you a patch.  A few bounces back and forth like that should be
all we need to finish it up.
