Hopefully Emacs 24 will be distributed with the gnutls libraries on
Windows, so that Emacs users under Windows also get a fully functioning

But I wonder why, er, the following:

If this is the case, then why not do something along these lines under
Windows?  That is, define `signal-process' (under Windows) to call the
external "kill.exe" program (if `signal-process' is broken under
Windows, as claimed), or fix `signal-process' to do whatever the
"kill.exe" program does?
