does the network stuff work on win2k at all currently?
and somehow i think that its cygwins/mingws job to provide minimal
implementations of missing functionality, instead of every application
itself containing it (1 vs n code, maintaince, bugs, bug fixes, ...)

for other OSs its similar IMO, the "tradition" of providing every missing
standard function in every application is just idiotic

but again, iam not against a seperate lib in svn which does exactly that,
that is provide such minimal missing standard functionality for OSs which
lack it
such a lib could be used by other applications (even ones unrelated to
audio/video) and i think that would be quite nice ...
