i'm personally not interested in working on win/mac issues. i'm probably not 
alone. for this new effort to work we need people not just making our code 
compile on win/mac but who are also making the necessary implementations for 
environment-specific features where necessary.

agreed. my personal preference is:

 - people with interest in win/mac need to do the work for those platforms
 - we all show preference for the KDE workspace, so if we can't accommodate 
everyone we ensure that we accommodate KDE

mine as well.
