...which is why I'd advocate making this release an 8.0 regardless of
win32 or pitr.  I know it's old school to actually base versioning on
technical criteria instead of buzzwords, but there's no reason we have
to follow the corporate mold. Still, I'd rather not get into that debate
yet since I don't want to let the win32 guys off the hook yet! 

win32 for the next release! go guys go!
