You need to provide an easy way in which this library can be built and
used at least under Linux and Windows. I have found the information on
this sight totally deficient in regards to creating a working version
under Windows. Your library may be excellent but unless you allow
everyone to see if it is so or not, it is not a viable alternative for
all end-users.
