Although that is obviously your prerogative it is important to remember
that Windows is easily the second most used version of PostgreSQL out
there (behind Linux).

who's willing to put in some development effort for it?

Well, from what I have seen of the Windows world there is a fairly sharp demarcation between users and developers. So use does not necessarily mean developer knowledge.
