Slowly but surely, support for Win95 and NT are being dropped off 
(generally in the process of enhancing the framework, as was done for 
services in this case).  I would accept contributions that fall-back to 
the previous behaviour, but I have no problems with suggesting that 
people who use a very old OS can also use an old Python/win32all to suit.
