I can answer the KDE part :-)

I think kde-cygwin is very important for KDE because everytime you talk to 
third party software developers they mention that cross-platform 
compatibility is an issue for them. That is ususally followed by either 
"That's why we don't use KDE classes, but only Qt." or in rare cases by 
questions how to wrap KDE / Qt classes so that they can compile both a 
Qt-only and a KDE from the same sources.

It will help KDE immensly as platform if the expansion to other platforms is
