Thanks for the reply.
I agree with you, at least partially.
To make such a beast as a GUI interface,there must be discipline, but at 
some point of development will appear
one or other bug that must be defeated before we can proceed.

What I think it must be done is contact who is interested in develop the 
win32 interface,
make a list of priorities,
and then define tasks for which one, so would not have duplicate work 
and would be more or less organized.

I think the best place to discuss is in the maillist.
Are there some discussion about win32 in the developer maillist?
