Great news, thanks.

Yes, though if the changes are significant, they will probably not
make it into Emacs 24.1.  Plus, I think you will need to sign legal
papers to contribute more than what you already have.  (I can
currently find on file your assignment only to Gnus.)

Is this for a 64-bit build, or is this needed for a 32-bit build as
well?  If for a 32-bit built, then what exactly are the problems with
image.c that requires w32compat.h?

Which MSVC header has the necessary declaration, and what is that
declaration?

Can we instead modify the #define on src/s/ms-w32.h so as to include
versions of MSVC above 1400?  Or does that not work for some reason?

I'd like to avoid changing source files in lib/, since they are
imported from gnulib.

Why is this part needed?

Is such a large heap really needed for a 32-bit MSVC build?  Or is it
for the 64-bit build?

What was the problem that required this change?

Thanks.
