No.  We need Windows.

Not much.

There isn't a setup.hint and the current package can't live in the same install
(which should either be fixed or the conflict should be stated in setup.hint).
And we don't know if anyone is using all those mapservers in osgeo4w.  I also
suspect that all those demos don't work with the new mapserver (even the one
that is already there) and therefore should probably also be removed.
