Actually it's not ;-)

The default value is win95
(which is being returned by several subfunctions at the "default" code path)
The preinitialized WIN31 value never gets used, as versionForced gets only set
in case the user specified a different --winver value...

Believe me:
I'd have changed this a loong time ago if this mechanism hadn't been the
(WIN31 *is* outdated, there's no denial)

BTW, I've got some version.c update waiting, going to submit it soon.
