I can take them unless they pull in a huge stack of dependencies I don't
already have anyway.  Again I think that rules out the Gtk/Gnome stuff.
I know next to nothing about Wx, I think the dependency chain is
manageable, but I haven't looked at what testing the distribution
entails.  I think I have built SGMLSpm in the past locally, I have to

The last time we tried to drop it there was a complaint IIRC.  I have no
idea if it still works, I thihnk it needs a few pretty invasive patches
(from memory, which may be wrong).  I have built myself before, but then
it broke and Yaakov made it work again so I'm not really sure what to do
about it.  It doesn't really fit in with what Cygwin tries to do (IIRC
it comes from Strawberry Perl, which is Windows native).
