[impdev] Request for Windows testers. VS 2010 Express.

In fact, my point would be more to find a way of compiling Imp without
Visual Studio, for the reason that even the free version requires
registration to Microsoft with RL informations, which I don't want to
provide and be associated with the license (no, i won't enter fake info into
a license, against my principles). Eclipse runs fine on Windows, and
probably not that much difficult to use as a project manager. I don't know
much about what compiler else than MS's could do it. Obviously, the
possibility of compiling for all 3 platforms at the same time is very
seductive. Again, just dreaming, I guess ;)
