That's not necessarily true. As in Linux, it makes a lot of sense to
write an interface between MSI and Cabal, and I've chatted a bit with
Sigbjorn Finn about this.
I'm very glad to have more windows users sending us requests! I hope
that a windows user can help us to implement some of these. Krasimir
Angelov has done lots of the windows hacking.
