It's your call obviously but do you want to forgo Win 7 support when many of the 
kind of developers who might be interested in FUSE on Windows are delaying or 
not bothering to upgrade to Win 8.x or Win 10 for various reasons?

Is there an alternative to that particular API that would allow Win 7 support?

Appreciate knowing the time frame :).

Your detailed build instructions worked fine for me.  I'll be unable to test 
until I set up a Win 8.x or Win 10 VM at some point.  But so far so good.

Since this cygfuse glue DLL is a separate package from your FUSE implementation, 
I guess it'll need a separate ITP.  Will you do the initial package upload and 
then turn maintainership over to me, or would you prefer I own the package from 
the start?  Either way OK with me.  I guess whoever will be doing the initial 
upload should be the ITP submitter as well.
