Personally, a native build of nginx on Windows is interesting to me. There
are no good, small native httpds which are capable of IPv6 at this time. As
I don't do Cygwin, that version was uninteresting to me. I was looking into
the feasibility of getting it to run under either UWIN and/or Interix (aka
SFU/SUA), as those are my normal POSIXy environments on Windows machines. I
have a number of Windows machines that I occasionally want to put static
content on, which only are reachable via IPv6, and IIS is seriously too
heavy for static content. So, if Igor's build works, and well, I'm all for
it. Of course, it'd be better if we could build it ourselves for any
customizations which one would like, but meh.

Anyhow, that's my 2 cents, whatever they're worth in the current global
economy.

Warmest,
