I should have specified - the patch is for 3.2. 2.7 code in this area is different but I'll get to that, and default/3.3 will also get this patch but it'll probably require some tweaking.

I guess I went overboard on the refactoring which is why Victor is seeing errors and has the issues with Unicode related stuff. I'll have to put back in the narrow version of the win32_xstat_impl function for now. I'm not comfortable messing with something new and fancy this late in the cycle so I'll just go back to a structure that worked and figure out something better later on.

I'd rather figure out the test_rmdir_on_directory_link_to_missing_target stuff on another issue - this issue has already held up the release long enough.
