Hooray.  As it's been about a week, and I haven't seen any complaints, I 
expect a final release is imminent.

I'd like to suggest that we make this release, 12.2, the last release to 
support Python 2.6 on Windows.  Historically we have dropped support for 
older versions of Python on Windows before dropping it on other 
platforms, and as we just moved all the other supported platforms up to 
requiring Python 2.6 or newer, this seems like a good time to move 
Windows up to requiring Python 2.7.

This also makes sense in light of our *highly* overloaded continuous 
integration system, which now takes over an hour to complete the Windows 
portion of our testing.

A note about this dependency bump should be included in the NEWS file 
and the final release announcement as well.
