mongrel_cluster rely on fork() functionality, which is missing in the
ruby mswin32 implementation, so it will fail trying to "daemonize"

Right now, a workaround is set N services (mongrel_service) for N
members of the cluster.

This remembers me need to get the dust off on some stuff... but that
takes time :-P
