The tone you've taken in your emails is very negative, and it's not
constructive in the least.

The work has been done with respect to Gtk# on Windows, Medsphere
excluded, has been mostly a volunteer effort.  If there's something that
hasn't yet been done (for instance Win64 support), it's because no one
is currently interested enough to invest the time.  And trust me when I
say that getting installers and builds working with Win64 is not

Bottom line is -- until someone steps up to implement it because they're
interested, or they're really nice, you can either pay someone to do it,
or work on it yourself.  If you write emails in a polite tone, people
might even be willing to help out.
