It does seem odd that so many drivers out there on the market have 
incorrectly implemented these mandatory features incorrectly since these 
days many have been certified by MS, and that they only seem to affect 
httpd. As far as Win32DisableAcceptEx, hack or not it worked great. What 
I have now to keep the server answering on https is a bigger hack, 
scanning error log every 30 minutes and if new AcceptEx error found, 
signaling a graceful restart. How did "timing issues" not affect the old 
hack, and why not use the old "known to work" hack for at least 
AcceptFilter none, up until some better fix is found? If that fix is 
found and cannot be implemented till, then it is.

Sorry to prod, but this will affect adoption of 2.4 on Windows.
