They clearly are a prerequisite for declaring "official" support for windows.
But they should not be a prerequisite for the merge,.
Currently we enable windows through cygwin. There is no jenkins. Folks have been  fixing  windows issues as they are discovered.
Merging the branch makes the situation no worse than it is today - all tests pass on Linux, there is no regression.
Merging now removes  the cygwin dependency.

Jenkins is critical to make windows officially supported platform without cygwin.
When Jenkins is enabled, the team that has worked on this branch will have to fix any bugs that have arisen in the mean time.
