One of the issues here is not just the .bat file, but

-the implicit assumption that all windows platforms are on filesystem 
with a granularity of 2s, that is, FAT32. We need to assume that
everything from Server 2003 and vista up is down to 1s granularity

-any/all outstanding win98 bugs. We could move the win98.bat file (and 
strip out win2k support there), but also state
"win98 is not supported, because not even MS support it". And list known 
problems that arent fixed...
