Surely you jest. Windows is the single biggest PITA platform from a
portability perspective, and has been in every release cycle since we
first had a Windows port, and there is no close second.
If you have any doubts about this, please consult the commit logs over
the past week or three for a particularly painful sequence.

Really? Good. I just committed my very last Windows-related fix, then.
Somebody else can deal with it.
Having thus vented, I do not seriously believe that we can drop
Windows-native. But please don't give me any jive about how it's
a small cost to support that platform.
