If you're still talking about http://point-at-infinity.org/ssss/, it's
free software. you don't have to worry about it disappearing anymore
than you have to worry about gpg disappearing. Also being pretty
simple to begin with and five years old now, there's not much
maintaining to be done.

If you lack the skill to port it and need it done pay someone to do it :)
(I'd talk to SSSS's dev, then I'd talk to the guy who made the
existing win32 port)
