All agree that it would be nice to make it work on Windows too. This would allow building cross-platform TUIs with haskell. Also there are things in vty, such as the Graphics.Vty.Attributes, that would be useful for CLIs too.

I'm sending this to raise interest and invite your help, be you a person with a Windows machine, a potential bounty donor, or someone interested in improving Haskell's portability and applicability.
