Add to that the cost on extension authors. I would surely *love* to dump Windows support in PL/R as it is a major league PITA. It is probably an understatement to say that over the last 10+ years, 95+% of the time I have spent maintaining and supporting PL/R has been directly attributable to the Windows port.
