Given the history of this component, I suspect the current Windows build
environment is similar to the common build environment shared by the
Tomcat Native components [2].

With all of the change above, my question would be "Why?". What are the
benefits of the proposed changes? What are the impacts on the other
supported operating systems?

Taking Daemon off in a new direction isn't really what the community
needs right now. What the community needs is support (in terms of fixes
