At this point, I think it's mostly undoable because of our heavy
reliance on a forking model. Win32 doesn't have fork().
We've talked about moving to a threaded long-running server model, or
adopting Zope <www.zope.org> as a platform, and both of those (very
future) developments would probably let us support NT.
