first. you are one of the few running duplicity under windows. how do you 
achieve that?

second. while probably a useful addition i doubt the maintainer will go for the 
dependency on one python module for one platform only. so if you really want to 
add it you would have to write the code in a way that only depends on it when 
running into this specific condition under windows.
