Does GD run on windows?  If not, that would be your first reason (as far 
as I can tell, it does not support windows).  Geeklog works hard to 
support windows platforms and is hard to justify implementing something 
for use by just a few users.  That said, we *would* include such code if 
it were contributed by a third party (e.g. you).  I would challenge you 
to work this support in which, if you know PHP, should only take a few 
hours to get it working and tested.  You have my word on that.

BTW, a comparison to *nuke isn't the type of carrot we chase ;-)
