Thanks.  Could you perhaps tell more about the changes, and what they
should provide on Windows that we don't already have?  (The diffs are
very large and I couldn't understand the gist from a cursory scan.)

The resolution of the MS-Windows system clock is 10 ms, so it hardly
makes any sense to use anything as complex as these lib/ changes, if
all we need is to add 3 more zeros to the current values.  For file
time stamps, the MS-Windows port already provides the finest possible
100-nsec resolution in the replacement `stat' (on w32.c), so again
nothing is needed, I think.  But perhaps I'm missing something, which
is why I asked the question above.
