FWIW: I think running on Windows should be an important goal. Although for
a different reason: having the discipline to be properly cross platform
means that porting to more obscure platforms such as mobile phones should
be easier. And hopefully it enforces consistency on the code...

Anyway, the bulk of the work should be in the libraries, and I would
expect that most of this would already be cross platform as they are
implemented in Java.
