I guess that's why no one has EVER asked for an IDEA capable Windows version?
I guess there are no Windows users who might want to communicate with PGP 2.6x
users or use most remailers?

I am not trying to prove a point. I merely wish to allow those who want a
GnuPG+IDEA binary to be able to have one. I give it away free and provide
source. Isn't that the point of Free Software? If commercial users don't want
it, they can download the official release. But for all noncommercial users,
there is NO reason why they shouldn't be able to have IDEA support.

The no patents clause of the GPL is stupid! Why can't we provide TWO versions
and let the users decide which best meets there needs? The unix users have had
this choice for some time, why are the Window's users less deserving? I am not
taking anything away from Werner or anyone else.
So it's real simple. Either leave me alone and let the users decide which
version they want, or force me to stop. I am not trying to steal anyone's work
or make money off it. I am merely adding some much requested functionality.
