Subject Re: Windows support

I'm sorry; I hit the send button before completing my post.  I was going

great idea.  Its presence has definitely saved me weeks of work.  I've 
made one or two tentative changes to the Erlang code locally - if I find 
myself becoming more proficient/confident at it - or discover anything 
other way I might be useful in helping CouchDB become more 
Windows-friendly, I'll certainly jump in to help.
