There isn't any work happening in that area that I'm aware of.  We  
talk about wanting to eventually have the whole package work on  
Windows, including a Windows-hosted KDC, but we haven't scheduled any  
actual work on it just yet.

We'd be glad to get patches contributed under such terms, sure.  No  
promises about integrating them without seeing the changes first, of  
course; and it would probably be best if you work closely with us on  
determining the changes needed.  There are probably a lot of POSIX  
assumptions made in the kadm5 or rpc code or elsewhere, and maybe use  
of symbols exported from other libraries on UNIX but not part of the  
official public ABI or the non-UNIX export lists (and thus subject to  
removal from the export list on UNIX, and not to be added without  
careful consideration on Windows or Mac).
