I'm not sure providing Windows binaries would be a good way of doing
that. And reports of issues on the mailing list from Windows users
unwilling to compile their own software strikes me as an annoying

But. I have used mxe[0] to build things for Windows quite
successfully, with my own small projects. It isn't very hard work,
though maybe cygwin would be less work or more reliable; I haven't
used it for that. Anyway, if you're curious, an example of it is in
a makefile[1] and described at the bottom of a readme[2].
