I tried it at one time. It went pretty easy, but there was one
difficulty. The code that reads the initial scheme image opens
it in `text' mode, not `binary' mode. This makes no difference on
a Unix machine, but it makes a great deal of difference on a
Windows machine. The posix library helps, but some things just
won't work correctly; your milage may vary.
Olin said that SCSH for windows would be fundamentally different
from SCSH for Unix as it would have to implement the `windows'
model of the world. I tend to agree, but a Unix SCSH ported to
windows NT (or 95, or dare I suggest porting the functionality
to Rice's MzScheme?) is a good intermediate step.
