We will not do this, because it would do nothing to make the GNU
operating system better.  GNU Emacs is a part of the GNU system; its
purpose is to be part of the capabilities of the GNU system.

Our mission is to replace and eliminate non-free software, not to
enhance it.  Therefore, the GNU Project's policy is never to include,
never to develop, never to recommend, features that would give better
support to a non-free system than to the GNU system itself.  "It runs
best on GNU" is our watchword.

You're being led into doing work to attract people into non-freedom by
the fact that you're using a non-free operating system yourself.  How
about switching from MS Windows to the GNU/Linux system, and then
working on something analogous for GNOME and Corba?
