It's open source. If it bugs you enough, you fix it. I'm just helping 
out with the Voice of Experience here :-)

If you don't want to write code yourself, you can attempt to use the 
code that's already there.

That's a bummer. When I'm in that situation, I dual-boot, with a virtual 
linux partition as a giant file on the Windows partition. But it's been 
a while -- we have a wall of rack-mount Linux boxes here to use when needed.
