Could that be my GSoC project for this summer? =) I think we could try 
to get Ole Andr? as mentor...

The project I'm the most interested in for GSoC is one that might just 
start a flamewar: Port FFmpeg to Visual Studio.
I'm not sure it is even welcome by most devs, but if it is, I'll try my 
best to write a clean port. It would involve using the same build system 
we currently have, using wgcc as a cl.exe wrapper, importing some 
missing POSIX functionality from MinGW, and using MinGW to compile the 
extensive asm we have (except inline asm). It would actually be a hybrid 
build (MinGW+MSVC). Should I put more effort into this or is everyone 
against this just for the sake of bashing Windows?
