2.8 based VM for WinCE request

Sigh. The plan was to fix up some little issues and put out release VMs by
or before mid-august (basically before SIGGRAPH). Was then moved back due to
too much other stuff and after Ian's new VMs were out I was hoping to find
just a little time to also adjust it to his directory structure (which is
superior to anything we have these days). And I still haven't even gotten
around to do those little fixes yet. And considering what's up next here I'm
somewhat doubting that there will be any development very soon.

Perhaps it's time to give up the Win32 VM maintenance to people who have a
bit of time for it. Anyone interested in taking over?! If so, drop me a note
