Concerning the Windows sigs: I'm afraid I can't help ATM.
Though my interest in another 1.6 release is quite low from a personal
standpoint (and @work we're about to migrate everyone to 1.7), I
wouldn't mind letting my laptop do some useful work to be able to
provide a sig. It's just that ... it's been a hell of a busy week both
@home and @work for me, so I haven't gotten around to it. So I hope
some of the other Windows devs can do it. If not, I'll try to make
some time during the weekend, and send my signature by Monday morning.
