Hello Darren,

I am officially on the Windows Task Force group, though didn't have a
chance to contribute yet. Primarily due to the lack of time lately and lack
of knowledge. Thus, I would suggest myself as not the one who could
effectively fill you in on the matter, but rather join you with an attempt
to fix some of these issues you mentioned.

Please let me know if you are interested in this kind of cooperation. But
keep in mind that I am in the process of getting things up and running with
regards to GHC build process.
