I actually sent out a request for win32 folks to test my
> presumptive patch some weeks ago:
In practice, posting a request to test a svn build on win32 will not
work. A slightly modified version of your request might read
1) download MPL from svn
2) compile and install MPL with Python < 2.4
3) spend two days figuring out step 2
4) inside python try "import subprocess"
5) respond back to the list with your outcome
You'll likely have more luck leaning on Charlie or me to make a test
build for you, and posting a link to it for people to try.
