Because people use it?
We don's supoprt it in the installer, but IIRC we've had a couple of
requests for it. So *somebody* uses it.

I haven't looked at things, but I assume client code is also affected in
some ways? If so, we also support 9x.

Build, no. Runtime, yes. I keep a couple of vmwares with NT4 around to
do this kind of testing on.

I'd be fine with requiring 2000+ to build as long as it can be *used* on
NT4...
