coreutils rm - win32 native port

Hi All,


I needed to use rm.exe on my project but found no decent pre-built binaries:

-          Cygwin binary was bad for me because the dependency on the DLL
and the mess it does with paths

-          GnuWin32 had some bugs with "\"

-          UnxUtils had problems with read-only files (rm -f doesn't work)


So I built my own version of rm, modified coreutils 6.9; tried to minimize
changes; remove.c was almost completely re-written using the native WIN32
API. It now compiles with MSVC 2005 and works well.


Bottom line:

I'd like this to be committed to main CVS - how and who? Does this need code
