Thanks for this post - it has certainly helped me see the `rock' and the
`hard place'. 

As an aside, I haven't used MS windows for some two years (using OS X
and Linux), but this will change shortly as my next project will require
a working Windows system with MSys. I could certainly document the setup
of Org-mode including functioning tests etc. on a line-by-line basis if
it will help.

Best, Martyn
