The bug22825 branch does this, and a few other things besides, while
maintaining support for builds under unix-descended operating systems

Could you tell me what the reason you were unable to use it was?
bu22825 is likely to be merged into default in the not too distant
future, so if there is a problem with it, it would be cool if you could
let us know about it.
