Is the problem with windows the lack of pwd and grp modules?  I presume you
need these for authentication and permission checking?  If that's the case,
perhaps you could implement a simpler avatar for windows that only supports
anonymous, read-only access to any files that the server has permission to
read?  (i.e. basically what the old server supported anyway)

Woo!  What about for the client?  ;)
