AtemOSC port to Windows?

TL;DR: does anyone have the time and inclination and skill to port AtemOSC to Windows?
I have a Blackmagic Atem Mini Pro. It connects to the computer via USB (and, optionally, ethernet). Isadora sees it as a webcam, yet you can switch between four different inputs. The Atem reclocks all the inputs so switching between sources is seamless. In that respect it's a big improvement on my current method, which is a Kramer switcher which I can automate from within Isadora via TCP/IP commands. I take the HDMI output into Isadora via BM UltraStudio Recorder 3G. But it's a clunky solution, and there's a visible pause if I switch between sources that don't match or have dodgy interpretations of the HDMI protocol, yes, GoPro, I'm looking at you. Using the ATEM Mini as an input device works much better. However, I can't control the Atem from within Isadora easily because, yes, I'm using Windows. Mac users can do this with ease, using AtemOSC. Windows users have to take more circuitous routes.
If only AtemOSC worked on Windows...
Looking at the Github repository, and reading the discussions, it looks like it ought to be possible, but I don't have the programming chops (or any programming skills at all ) or I'd do it myself, hence asking if there's anyone with the time and inclination.
Hi there Mark!
That is quite a big ask.. This will take a few weeks of full-time work to get at a level that is 'production' safe..
Let me look this over and see or this is something that I wish to bite into..
