I tried a while ago on an early beta 4.0 (running under Win2000). It was
very quick to integrate and it worked. I didn't spend much time with it
because at the time I was trying to use Win32 Fibers to implement coroutines
in Lua and the Boehm collector couldn't possibly work in that environment so
that was the end of the experiment.
