I guess, but I'm not sure;
Python 2.5 includes ctypes which could be used as a 
replacement for the win32 part.

To some previous questions in this thread. 

I'm fine with any improvements and doctest cleanup. My 
problem was, that I couldn't really merge the linux tests 
into one document because I didn't had a linux box 
when I wrote the implementation for testing.

I agree with the maintainance overhead. That's bad.

I also recognized the buildout difference in the tests. I guess
the egg version is older then the version then I used from the 
trunk. I guess again, I think Jim did some improvments in 
buildout and didn't change the tests in zope3recipe.

Could this be the case?
