I've ported my Linux app to Windows...fairly easy to do with mingw, but
to convert all of my working file-descriptor based stuff to windows handles,
just to support winpcap, is not something I can really do....
And I'm well aware of the joys of a good unix environ, but not all
of my users are so lucky!
