Ok, maybe that assesment was too harsh.

Its just that if I could choose which w32 functionality should be
improved, I would choose other more basic stuff*. IMHO having mtty
support as a configure option that is just not available on w32 would
be quite enough for emacs 23.

* like having "find-dired" choose a cygwin find if available, and not
  ever trying the w32 find util, which it doesnt work with anyway. And
  finding some workarounds for c-c c-c killing the local process
  rather than the remote in a shell buffer using a ssh client. And so
