No, I don't see a conflict in this at all.  Thing of having Asterisk
working on Cygwin as a "nice to have feature, but not necessary for
Asterisk releases".  I think that's the point that Kevin in trying to
convey.  (In Fedora, we have a very similar idea with Primary
Architectures and Secondary Architectures.  People are working on ARM
and PPC and S390 platforms, but if one of those platforms isn't
completely working, we won't hold up the release for primary

I've known Kevin a long time, and childish is not a word I would use
to describe him.  He's one of the most competent Asterisk developers
around, and has shown his expertise in complex coding issues time and

doesn't help your cause.
