Windows NT and above (Win2K, WinXP) do have a concept of users and home
directories, so this is logical. Win9x does not really. Or maybe it is
an issue with Python?

I lean towards the latter. I would like to do some work on the TkIM
client in Twisted, to get some experience and 'give something back'. I
always liked the Jabber approach (the protocols being handled on the
server-side). But they did not keep the ICQ gateway up to date, so I
stopped using it. But a Jabber protocol in Twisted may go further (and
later perhaps have a Jabber server written in Twisted).

I will look for some binaries. I am not set up with cygwin at the
moment, being on a slow-ass modem connection.
