[launchd-dev] launchd for windows

Has anyone heard of or personally done any work on porting launchd to Windows?
I know Vista has WAS (which is sort of like launchd but mostly
tailored for deamon-like services), but launchd, if ported, has no
reason to be exclusively tied to Vista, it can work on any version of
Windows still in use.

On one occassion, I've implemented an enormously severe subset of
launchd which can be summarized by the only type of process
configuration plist supported:
<plist version="1.0">
		<string>-k run</string>
        <false />

And it was fun to do. I wonder if someone was more productive.
