> I forgot to mention that I did not build tbzr.  (The shell integration has
improved in the last year but still slows our machines with numerous, deep
repos to a crawl.  We prefer bzr-explorer.  It can be slow, too, but usually
fast and we get to decide when to take the hit.)  All I did was build the
bzr C extensions for x64 and verify that the result works against 64-bit
python 2.7.

Looks like I got 9 or 10 failures from selftest, some of them surely because
the machine is not running an sshd.  Lots of hanging threads... need to look
at that when I get back.  Also, if anyone knows of an sshd implementation
for Windows which is *actively maintained* and *does not require Cygwin*, I
would love to know about it.
