How do you see that mapping to win32? There's no '/etc', '/etc/init.d'
equivalent would be the current 'zopeservice.py', and '/etc/cron.d'
equivalent would be 'scheduled tasks'. I believe '/var/log' could be
replaced by logging to the 'nt event log', there are lots of tools to
work with that. That still leaves '/etc/' and '/var/run' in the air. I
guess they could just be right into the application directory?
