Yes that would be great.  Would you also be able to provide instructions on how to
install a functional win32 PostgreSQL server.  There are many DBA's,  interested
users etc. who are not programmers that would benefit from a win32 version that can
be installed i.e.. "setup.exe".  PostgreSQL would gain a greater audience/user base
by providing a server that can be easily installed into the win32 environment.
This would include not just PostgreSQL,  but the entire cygwin/PostgreSQL solution.

With regards to win32<>Linux,  I'm on both sides of the fence.  If I had a "solid"
win32<>Linux PostgreSQL solution I might be more inclined to use/develop using
PostgreSQL.  As it is I,  cannot use PostgreSQL for my win32 clients,  so I am
stuck with other Server's that provide support for win32<>Linux.  This should be a
wake up call to all the propeller heads (I am one) out there working on
PostgreSQL,  wiggle that hot dog in front of their noses and they will come...
