The problem is that when either side (unix developer or windows developer)
wants to do anything that changes the build procedure, the other side
breaks until someone makes the appropriate changes on the other build.
Unless some committer is going to commit to looking over patches to dsp
files and making makefile changes and vice versa or we were to require
that anyone that wants to change build procedure must make both sets of
changes, I'd think this is going to be a mess.  And in the latter case, I
think you're going to lose developers as well.
