I was the original author of ices2, though Karl is now doing most of the 
development.

My intent in writing ices2 was to keep it largely portable. This generally 
means "it could be ported to windows, if someone motivated and smart wanted 
to do so". I don't have a legal copy of windows (and the MSVC++ version I 
have is more than a little out of date), so I can't do that port. I don't 
think Karl does any windows development either.

So, in short: we don't have anything _against_ win32, and a port would be very 
welcome. However, we don't have the resources ourselves to implement that 
port.
