It is just a very pragmatic question: the wizards make heavy use of
unix facilities for managing intermediate files. It would be quite
a bit of work to make this portable.
(In addition, we don't even have a Fortran compiler for Windows, to
compile solve/resolve (required by the wizards). But unless someone
solves the first problem, this is a moot point.)
