|  I don't have access to a Windows box, so *I* cannot ensure the code runs on
|  Windows.
|  And if the code involved doesn't make use of any OS-specific functions or
|  libraries, like purely numerical code in base, if it worked on one OS but
|  not on another, something lying deeper would be broken.
|  So, can we weaken the above?

I've weakened it to make it clearer that there's a continuum.  Whaterver you don't do the maintainer may have to, and that'll affect how keen he or she is to adopt the idea.
|  I would be willing to be co-maintainer of random, mtl or containers.
|  I could be persuaded to become sole maintainer of some of them if
|  necessary.

great thank you!
