Well it's worth checking. But whereas Windows breaking our understanding of
what SO_REUSEADDR does doesn't actually violate any specification, not having
a TIME_WAIT state at all would certainly violate the TCP spec. So it's
somewhat unlikely that that's what they're doing. But anything's possible.
