It was said, way back when, "adding Windows support will add a huge pool
of Windows-only developers".  I'm not sure that the impact was really
all that big there.  We have a few Windows-enabled people, but how many
of them are Windows-only?

We similarly said, "moving the TODO list to the wiki will add a huge
pool of users that cannot edit the current CVS-only file".  To date,
most of what has happened is that the old items have become stale and
Bruce continues to do 99% of the work of maintaining it.

So I am dubious that people that currently do not contribute will
contribute in the future just because we change the system.
