A few dependencies fixes and minor things, nothing that will brake
your setup or anything.

Yeah, cluster is in the near TODO list for mongrel_service. Basically
it will parse the config/mongrel_cluster.yml and spawn all the needed

Also, I must add, will automaticaly monitor and re-spawn dead
processes, how cool is that? Ah? ;-)

pen or pound is a "no no" on windows. they require cygwin
compatibility layer, which is a waste of performance.

I've implemented a simple TCP balancer solution for one of our
customers, but its under contract, I hope could convince them to
release it Open-Source and we will support branch witht he internal
version, still yet to figure out this...

I'm glad that I'm not the only one using (or forced to use) win32! At
least we drop some useful tools there! (ruby+rails+mongrel) :-)

A bit late: congrats Zed! Happy birthday Mongrel, good Dog! :-D
