Just an important caution for other developers.

By excluding a platform, in this case Windows, you're excluding about 
1/2 of your possible users. And you're discouraging other developers 
from re-using the functionality your package provides, because this 
automatically restricts the audience for their package.

If there's an underlying problem, then it is is almost always better to 
fix the underlying problem, even if this takes quite a bit of work.
