I think we should call now "the future".  Windows services were broken
completely by the sitecustomize.py fiddling, and remain in a hackish

Christian, Mark wrote the book (literally) on managing Windows
services from Python, and wrote all the win32all support code Zope has
relied on forever to get Windows services working at all.  If it's at
all possible to apply his patches, please do so -- they address
several long-standing problems Zope suffers on Windows, and nobody on
Earth is better qualified to fix them than Mark.
