Short answer: probably better than 50% odds of this happening, but we don't
have a timeline for it.  Since Python and wxPython are cross-platform and we
have some support for Windows anyway, once Ralf drives a stake through the
heart of FORTRAN it will be much easier, but Windows has so little in common
with Mac and Linux that it will still require a substantial amount of effort
to create something complete and bug-free (and automated - this is the
really hard part).  I'd estimate at least several months' work between Ralf
and me, and we both have many other more urgent items on our to-do lists.

4. If I just run phenix.refine executable from its directory, it stops with

This is my fault.  I'd recommend using the latest nightly build (the ones I
released are relatively stable).
