Dired chown command complains that chown is not available for windows
systems.  However, windows versions >= 7 (at least) have the "takeown"
command, which while not as comprehensive as the unix chown command at
least allows the current user to take ownership of a file/dir, as long
as the user has admin privileges.  It would be useful for dired to
permit this possibility on windows systems.
