Yes, I agree Windows and MacOS testing would be valuable, and I would
appreciate any help you can provide.  I don't have any access to MacOS
hosts myself at the moment.  I do have a Windows 10 partition on one

getting it set up to the point where I trusted test results could
easily eat all of the time I have allocated to this project :-/
