Has KPhotoalbum been ported to KDE4 at least? Or is it KDE4 incarnation of 
some KDE3 apps?
I'm not sure, but in worst cases x11 things might be just #ifdef'd for WIN32, 
so that it will compile at least. But doing that surely will disable some 
functionality. Thus, next step would be implement that functionality either 
independant of any particular platform (through Qt/KDElibs) or make a Windows 
only implementation of them (they'll be compiled for windows, while ignored 
for Linux and vice versa).

No Cygwin installation is required, then.
