Would you care to step forward and volunteer to work on this?  The
NTEmacs maintenance team is extremely small, and has trouble even
catching up with the mainline code development, let alone Windows
specific features.

Oh, and as for the fact that the Mac port was available before the
Windows one: it's simply because of administrative problems that
prevented the person who compiled the Windows binaries from having
write access to the appropriate directory.  There's no real problem
here, and nothing to talk about.
