Ed Korthoff suggested that we implement stuff like this twice, once for
posix, and once using the win32 api, since apparently that's the only way to
those things cleanly. The advantage there is that we can look at how various
portable C programs do it (ie httpd), since the python functionality there
is just a very thin wrapper or glue library to the native functionality.

I dunno. I don't know a whole lot about any of this yet, I'm just relaying
advice ;-)
