I don't think I can be +1 or -1 unless we all really look at the
NT stuff. If it looks like an easy transparent patch which has
no effect on the already existant OSs, then I think it makes sense
to add some stuff to 1.3 before we release it. If the NT stuff
involves a lot of work to allow the UNIX stuff to continue working
as is, I vote we only fix that and do nothing else.

I think sfio is more universal, esp since Perl now has some hooks
for it. I think sfio-Perl is still semi-experimental but at least
that means sfio is being worked on and is available from CPAN :)
