I would say that it shouldn't delay the release --- worst case, we say
"the collector doesn't work very well under Win32 yet".  It's probably
not the only part of the system we'll find needs work under Win32.

This is moot if Merlin can find some simple fixable bug, but I'm worried
that doing anything significant might require major work.

BTW, what about the issue we just identified with piperead() failing to
set errno on Windows?  That would certainly account for the "random
collector restarts" complaint ...
