OK, I was mostly wondering whether either of my two plugins would be

Not sure, I know the source is available and I think there's "nightly" 
builds. I'm just remembering last release when many people were asking 
where is the Webhelper plugin on Windows. I don't think these people 
(mostly web devs probably) were really inclined to (re)build with 
GtkWebKit support.

It's your call though, you're the one suffering through using Windows to 
get this built :)
