Memcached for Win32

I just compiled a native Win32 version of memcached. I used the current 
libevent (libevent-1.1a) and Memcached (memcached-1.1.12) I tried really, 
really hard to find a working binary on the Internet, 'cause I'll use Win32 
memcached for my tests at home, but I couldn't find a win32 binary.

I'm happy to share my changes to the code (which are not many and are mostly 
based on an old post at called "Initial build of Win32 
memcached available..." by Gregory Block, I think) with the community and my 
binary file; in fact this message is to offer what I have, so maybe it can 
be put at the official site if possible. Perhaps the guys at the official 
site could make a warning that the provided Win32 binary is unsupported by 
them or something, perhaps they could merge the changes into the main 
code... who knows. If enough interest is shown, I might improve the changes 
and maybe even try to make a NT service out of memcached too.

Okay, I truly hope my work can be used, I'll be waiting for some feedback. 
If anyone is interested in the code and/or the binaries, please let me know. 
The zip file with everything (including libevent) is 757 KB.
