I'm not sure "require" is really the correct word here - people are 
already using couchdb on Windows with this issue still in place.  From 
the POV of these users, I suspect that making this a requirement which 
stalls further releases is a step backwards rather than forwards.

The patch in, along 
with either waiting for the next erlang release, or a hand-patched 
erlang build.  As mentioned though, we *already* have happy Windows 
users with this issue unresolved - it isn't ideal and should remain a 
high priority to fix, but it works for them today.
