Well, everything that builds on zdaemon is Unix-specific --  the
underlying machinery uses stuff like this freely and ubiquitously:

+ Unix domain sockets.

+ os.fork()

+ The signals signal.SIGTERM, signal.SIGHUP, signal.SIGINT, and
   signal.SIGCHLD, with Unix semantics.

If nothing else, it's a wonderful demonstration of how core Python
allows writing wholly platform-specific code.

Unix-heads certainly want it anyway; Windows-heads aren't used to
anything better than the Windows services API, so they don't even
bring it up.

Check it in too!  Nobody is volunteering to look at your patches, and
they're important.  I can't make time for it myself (would if I
could).

The Zope3 Windows installers to date are produced via "setup.py
bdist_wininst", and that's all.  No Windows service support, no
bundling of Python, no bundling of win32all, ..., the Zope3 Windows
story really has nothing in common with Zope2's so far.  That's a
discussion for zope3-dev, though.

Thank you.  Poor Mark <0.5 wink>.
