No problem, we all make mistakes.  Let's now focus on ensuring that we
get a  solid release for our win32 users.   With the untimely death of
my desktop (where I could run win32 under vmware), that particular
ball is on your and our willing users court, I'm afraid.

If nobody reports any major issues, let's shoot for putting the
release out this weekend, does that sound reasonable?  Being so small,
I can do it in a few minutes, since there's no major changelog to
worry about.
