It seems that we encounter *a lot* of bugs/incompatibilities in the
DOS-based Windows versions.  It starts to be a major time sink, and
I'm beginning to wonder if we should support them at all.  The most
problematic thing is the lack of unicode support, it is really
embarassing that we can only support ascii (the English language).

What would people say if we suggested LilyPond users to upgrade from
DOS based Windows systems to something more modern, like Windows XP or
Ubuntu linux, or send tested patches to CVS?

As far as I have understood, the plan is to keep the Cygwin version
of LilyPond in addition to the new installer. I have got the impression
that the Cygwin version works (although you get some warning popups) for
Win 98 and Win ME, so then we can always refer to Cygwin for those
users. If the Cygwin version will disappear, I still think it makes
sense to maintain LilyPond only for modern versions of Windows. That's
what happens for many other programs anyway.
