My company is bundling memcached with one of our server products on 
Windows to make it easier to install for the client and to be able to 
manage bugs internally. The changes are solely related to that. For 
instance: use our internal NT service code, a different name, different 
resources, load and verify configuration details from a config file.

The only changes that might be nice to push back into the main source 
base is the abstraction of the memcached code from the NT service code. 
Basically this entailed separating main into the functions: 
service_init(argc, argv), service_run(void), service_stop(void) and 
service_uninit(void). main() on non-Windows turns into a progressive 
call of those functions. main on Windows is orients more around running 
the NT service code.
