I so agree.  I mean since most of m0n0wall is actually just text files, I 
should be able to unpack and modify quite a bit from a Windows box, or any 
other system.  You should only need a full system to compile binaries. 
Unfortunately, I do not know enough about it to know why this hasn't been 
done, or if it could be done.  Or at least, I don't know enough, YET. :-)
