Hello Toon,

I am grateful for this opportunity.  I am just a bit curious to get
it. Indeed it would be great. Indeed we spend the last years much
effort to support "The mother of all languages" for windows and
especially for x64. There are still some minor nits open, but they are
already addressed and get hopefully fixed in 4.6.

So if you serious, thank you very much.
