I am not asking for it, just curious if OpenAFS will (eventually)
make it to the Windows App Store(*), just as there is now an
iOS client (branded by a certain vendor, of course :-)


(*) If I am recalling correctly, to get things into the Microsoft App
Store you have to use VC2012, and there is some incompatibility
with using VC2012 and XP target support, so you have to do some
ugly hacks until MS updates VC2012 to include XP support (RSN).
I probably have the details wrong, since I tend to compile on
Windows in VC about once a year (usually for testing something).
I could imagine this could delay releasing into the app store.
