Win32 libraries for Haskell

The situation seems to be this:
* Sigbjorn is actively maintaining hslibs/win32 for Galois reasons, and
reluctant to transfer to libraries/win32 because it's untested (I'm
that the Green-Card dependency is soluble by putting the GC output
in the CVS tree). Fair enough.
* Alastair believes that lilbraries/win32 should work, but cannot
* Everyone else would far rather not to have to choose
* The sooner we can dump hslibs/ the better
I'm not sure how to make progress here. Is anyone else interested or
willing to take ownership of libraries/win32? (Graham? Krasimir?)
This isn't a GHC specific thing -- I believe/hope the same libraries
should work equally well for Hugs.
