What I meant to say was in the context of this patch, i.e. Windows specific.
I would not remove parallel port support altogether, but I suggest to
disable it for Windows (both x86 and x64), and remove the windows folder. As
I said, my biggest gripe is with giveio.sys. IMHO, applying this patch would
be a step into the wrong direction.

Actually, I wanted to bring the whole thing around libusb support on Windows
up for discussion. Perhaps we will find some common ground here. I will
start a separate thread on this some other time.
