The last good 2 or 3 times for various open-source projects I have
made code for ended up not using it for similar reasons to "not enough
windows developers".  Nowadays I have very little time to spare.  My
method would work equally well for testing everywhere, not just on any
one system, and I can help set it up, but would need help in actually
creating the tests as I have not used llvm in depth enough to know how
it is supposed to act and so forth, but I can help setup a testing
framework if people would actually use it.
