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.
