Are you volunteering? By all means, welcome aboard!

Because the Cygwin build works pretty well when your environment is
Cygwin. And some of us, to put it mildly, wouldn't touch that crap
again if it were the last working environment on the surface of the
Earth. I certainly don't plan to spend a second making Emacs work
better with Cygwin (tought of course I have nothing against other
people doing it; I'm not an anti-Cygwin zealot).

Seems like there's a sizable user base of non-Cygwin users of Emacs on
Windows. And some of us like to work on Emacs development.
