It's illegal to redistribute SFU. That's a showstopper. Mingw creates
native windows binaries, anyways.

It's illegal and that will never change. I had this idea a year or so ago
when the new version of SFU came out, but MS' draconian licensing is too
restrictive to make SFU of any use.

It would probably work, but it's a legal problem, not a tecnhical problem

Oops, I wasn't away of the legal issue. Can you explain what exactly
we can't do with SFU ?
