That's what CI builds are so great for. Now, ASF does not yet have
Windows or OS X boxes ready for this, but I think at least a Windows
box is on the way. Hopefully, we can get a Hudson slave on it.

In addition to file system differences, NIO itself behaves quite
differently on different platforms, so I would argue that MINA/NIO
projects in general would benefit from running tests on multiple
platforms. You know, WORA :-)
