I'm a little unclear on the hotspot changes. If we define 
WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN then certain APIs like sockets are excluded from 
windows.h so we then have to include the specific header files like 
winsock2.h - is that right?


I'm curious about this change. u_short comes from types.h on 
non-Windows, is it simply missing on Windows (at least once we have 
WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN defined) ?


1029 #endif
1030 #if defined(_WINDOWS)

Using elif could be marginally faster given the two sets of conditions 
are mutually exclusive.
