Greg, what absolutely astouds me is that you probably didn't compile and
test on Windows at all with the generated scripts before you removed the
handwritten ones. Sorry, but that's totally against our policy to run
the tests before non-trivial commits.

So now we're almost back to where we were before I started hacking the
Win32 port -- i.e., we don't have a working Win32 port. Somebody with a
Windows box will have to spend a lot of time getting the buld up to
speed again.

That somebody won't be me. I simply don't have the time these days; if I
had, I'd have tweaked the generator long ago to DTRT (yes, that would
have taken me a lot longer than just maintaining the old scripts did).
I'd intended to maintain the old scripts so that we (I?) had more time
to get the generated ones working to my satisfaction.

As far as I'm concerned, it's now down to three choices: a) dig into
gen-make.py immediately to get it working in a few days, b) reinstate
the old scripts, or c) live without Win32 for at least the next couple
of releases. As I said, I don't have time for a).
