The code Katie wrote and tested, and what has been posted by me are two
different things. So what has been posted might not be that solid as a
rock as the beta's you got from PeerDirect. I will try to put some
binaries of what I posted together over the weekend.

That said, I don't quite understand the attitude of some people here. Is
it that if the native Win32 port as I posted it isn't as solid and
stable as v7.3 on Unix (well, some flavours), we will have to reject it?
With that ruleset (ruleset, what a word in this context ;-) we would not
have an SQL parser yet ...

Also, so far I have the impression not many people have actually taken a
look at the code itself. Everyone is busy bitching about the build
environment and if it is kosher to cook the code in Cygwin milk on a
Microsoft stove or not. Sorry guy's, but that's not the point! Does
anyone feel that the quality of our mainstream unix product is in
serious danger because of the code changes, required for the Win32 port,
which affect the unix environment? If so, could those please discuss
their feelings with their spouses or shrinks unless they can actually
point at specific areas of the code?
