Martin: Looking at the 1.3 (stock) (I know its not yours).
I see an "OS" validity check that is inappropriate for my OS.  Yes I 
run NT 4, but I also have a port for chmod.  As you review your code, 
would you think about ways to allow seemingly invalid Win32 users to 
specify an override.

Having the initial indication that Win32 is not a viable platform to
execute on, by default is fine.  Just allow those who configure the
environment to be more neutral to utilize the functionality if they

As I get time, I'll figure out Bugzilla and report this inconvenience
against the 1.3
