Thank you for taking the time to review these changes Garrett.  Although
we have a few reporters keenly interested in such things, they apparently
aren't watching svn commits closely enough to give us confidence that this
code is golden.  I'd really like some feedback from original contributors
to file_io/win32/readwrite.c but know that people are busy.

We did identify the issues with m4 caches and xml/expat (wish those had
slipped into 1.2.x sigh) and the aprutil cache, so those fixes will go in
with 0.9.11 and we'll call it a day.  Another couple weeks and we can push
all these changes to readwrite etc into a release, maybe get some folks
to try out snapshots if it causes them grief.

Bill
