The users I've talked to who have shown interest in doing this have usually
decided to pursue the Linux direction for their plugin development because
the pernicious interactions of Cygwin, the Erlang tools, and various other
things are so cagey, and you never quite know when you're safe.

Perhaps a Linux install in a VM is the easiest path forward.
