I've never used mod_perl with windows, so I cannot help here. If 
somebody sends me a proper doc patch, I'd be delighted to apply it.

The reason for winXX not featuring in the mod_perl docs is that hardly 
anybody uses mod_perl on windows, or that's my feeling from seeing the 
discussions on the list, which can be wrong of course.
