Additional guidelines

There are guidelines related to porting code to win32 published at:

In fact, most of them can be also called "how to write more portable code". I 
mean especially things like using 

  if (!QDir::isRelativePath(path))

instead of:

  if (path[0]=='/')
  if (path.startsWith('/'))
To maintain source portability for win32 target, I'd like to ask you, core 
developers, to have a look at this simple set of guidelines and apply it 
while adding new code. This can greatly decrease additional work for 
kdelibs/win32 people, and reduce potential bugs.

Feel free to request more information in above document.
