That sounds not so good. Okay, templates are really problematic, but i
hoped SWIG could handle them. I better don't ask about boost ;)

I have seen that. I made a clone of the repository on the weekend, but i
needed a lot of time to get Mercurial, CMake and Eclipse on Windows
working. I've worked yesterday on a stat() function and i think i can
publish a preliminary result for reviews on weekend, along with a whole
bunch of questions. 

It's my first time with Mercurial and it looks hmm, interesting. Is it
really easy to merge development branches and keeping them in sync?
