Search the archives for Ben Wing being vetoed by Martin or Mike. The
proposals are all there. ;-)
1. cua.el should be ported and turned into a behavior, with default
value `(featurep 'mswindows)' (however that is properly spelled).
2. A better job should be done of handling filenames containing
spaces and non-ASCII characters.
3. Packages should be installed where a Windows user will be able to
find them (I don't know where that is; maybe the right thing to do is
to expose an interface like `describe-installation' that finds them
for the user).
That would be a real good start, I think.

No, this should be handled with Customize defaults and behaviors that
conditional on `(featurep 'mswindows)' IMO. But like you I don't
actually use the platform, so I'm not real sure.
 Behaviors are something that Ben Wing conceived and implemented
partially, see C-h f define-behavior. They're sort of like a global
minor-mode with Customize wingdings.
