That does sound like a lot of work, so I wish you the best of luck with  
it! I've got gccxml_plugin to compile and pass all tests against gcc 4.6  
and 4.7 now, so hopefully it would work just as well with a successful  
windows plugin build.

GCC takes a lot of time to compile on linux too! Its one of the reasons I  
thought the plugin was a good idea.. Btw, do you know about make's `-j`  
flag? I almost always use it to parallelise the build process one and a  
half as many times as I have available CPU cores... e.g. I'd run `make  
-j6` on a quad-core cpu. When a build fails, then I'll fall back to `make  
VERBOSE=1`, as error messages often get lost when building in parallel.
