My opinion on this is that we should do this as soon as it is any kind
of inconvenience to us to support XP. I.E. if we add some non-optional
feature that doesn't work on XP. I don't think we necessarily have to
drop existing XP code "just because", let the existing support stay
there until it no longer works.
Its possible that this is true already, I've not done any Win32 work
recently. If so, just drop it.
