It may be worth rolling back the above two commits.  I'm not sure.  I'd like to see if anything else falls out of this during the beta phases.

There is a chance that some library has code similar to that found in test_socketserver.py that defines classes that inherit from the Forking type(s) but which are conditionally never used on Windows.  The above commit would break that.  I'm not sure how common that'll be.
