That was a previous objection when we were preparing to release Emacs 22.1. Now we have time to sort out any breakage that complexity might bring, so I'm not so worried about that. The complexity is necessary because Windows makes it hard to wrestle back control over a few keybindings from Windows itself. The current patch may look more complex than it really is because of the "rough state", which consists of commented out debugging code, much of which seems unrelated to the keyboard changes.
