In 2.3.6, there wouldn't just be that change, but also a few other
changes that have been collected, some relevant for Windows as well:
there are several updates to the email package, and a fix to pcre
to prevent a buffer overrun.

I'm not saying that you should produce a Windows binary then, just
that it would be good if one was produced if there was another
release. Of course, people might also get the binaries from ActiveState
should they produce some.
