I don't own any Windows PCs anymore, so I'm just double checking this before I
put a bunch of additional work into the patchset I'm working on.  Usually when
MSDN says something is not supported it's accurate, apparently that is not the
case for this particular feature.

I apologize if I have offended you here, occasionally there are reports of
things working on Windows that are not quite accurate.  What I was getting at
here is that it would be nice to have an application that supports this feature
to list on the bug report.  Having that information when I submit the patch I
can then say "this patch fixes Bug #19493, which affects applications X, Y, and
Z."  This kind of information can sometimes help a patch get accepted, as a
list of affected applications can show the importance of the patch.

Since I am familiar with this functionality, and the fix for this is rather
trivial, I will look into writing a patch to get this feature implemented and
show its validity with the automated test system.  I cannot guarantee that I
will be able to get such a patch accepted any time soon (or ever), but I will
do my best to get this fixed for you.
