Adrian, do we have alternatives here?
If you can come up with an alternate patch or suggestion that ensures
that things just work (tm) for PyPy, I'd gladly hear it.

I'm not saying that Dan's approach is perfect, but either we want to
support PyPy and we'll have to think harder about solutions.... or we
could give up and say upfront that we do not plan on supporting PyPy
ever. As far as I know the latter is not an option...

I do not use Windows, and yet this "Patrick" I've never ever met ( ;)
complains regularly that I break his stuff and that I should care...
See what I mean here?
