As I said, I'm going to fix the stderr issue. This will enable the
pending log rotation stuff more or less incidentially.

I meant to implement that stderr handling stuff for win32, in order to
have a clean stderr output. Unix isn't affected, it works as posted.

The add-on are the functions, not the log rotation. Log rotation for
unix is beta-ready, and virtually unchanged for weeks now. It will be
available shortly for win32 too, as soon as the stderr piping issue is
solved. I'm a bit tired of arguing, that's why I didn't split the
functions in a part that was proposed together with the core
functionality before feature freeze and an additional part. I feel that
the majority of installations (win32) will have them anyway.
