Yes, in doc/installation.txt it does state the pywin32_ requirement.

Good, I don't think you would do that under windows without pywin32_
before the 1.4.21 release.

Yes, I can see where the confusion is. Maybe we can change the two
lines in CHANGES.txt:

  - pywin32 is no longer required to run on Windows (anatoly techtonik)
  - Rewritten logic in ctypes for Windows (anatoly techtonik)


  - Rewritten logic in ctypes for Windows to remove
    dependency on pywin32. Running roundup as a service still needs
    pywin32. (anatoly techtonik)

Anatoly is that acceptable? Do you have other thoughts on how to make
this requirement clearer?
