Outstanding issues I'm aware of:
- FFI. A Windows release needs a working ffihugs, and we also need
the modules that use the FFI to work. This is probably mostly just a
matter of testing. However foreign import wrappers compiled with MinGW
don't seem to work with the MSVC-compiled WinHugs. (They're used by
the Win32, OpenGL and GLUT packages.) I don't see how we'll fix that.
- User's Guide entry for WinHugs.
Does the WinHugs bundle include plain hugs and runhugs? What libraries
are in the big bundle?
Are you generating fresh libraries (using MinGW) for your bundles?
