Yes, being able to test Mono on Windows is handy, and so far, something like
over half of the bugs I found and reported are shared by the Windows and
Linux ports.

However, I'd like it if there was an easy way to force the Windows port to
use WinForms and libgdiplus rather than their native Windows equivalents, to
make testing easier.
