Awesome, Hendrik! I got your patch and hopefully today I'm going to be
releasing UnixNPI 1.1.4 and also a binary for Win32. Why would you want
to use this under Win32? Well, you should be able to do 115200 (and
possibly 230400) serial package installs under Windows finally, and also
do batch package uploading.

I'll do a GUI wrapper... later. Probably in VB.
