That's good to hear.

The cause - well, the root cause is MSVC / Windows... Microsoft... - is
likely that I didn't chop down the main CMakeLists.txt to form the
example one for the standalone plugin... I just put enough bits in it to
make it work well on Linux. Windows guys from earlier have hacked the
main CMakeLists.txt to do whatever else is needed.
The build of the plugin doesn't actually involve anything that isn't
done for the build of the lib... it's a DLL with exports coming out in
the end the same. So I guess the "multitude of manual steps" are also
workarounds for whatever the cut down CMakeLists.txt isn't doing for the
Windows case compared to the main lws one.
