Martin and I were talking about dropping support for older versions of
Windows (of the non-NT flavor).  We both thought that it was
reasonable to stop supporting Win9x (including WinME) in Python 2.6. 
I updated PEP 11 to reflect this.

The Python 2.5 installer will present a warning message on the systems
which will not be supported in Python 2.6.
