Sounds fine to me - except I would raise the bar a little - why not make a
pop3propxy *binary* release for Windows too - then the problem becomes moot-
on Windows you get a binary.

I realize time is an issue, so this strategy sounds OK for beta2, but maybe
we could aim for a beta3 with binaries before v1.
