This is true, but 2.4.3 has a serious problem on windows, so you actually
already today have to use cmake 2.4.4 oder cvs HEAD if you're on windows.
To make sure this doesn't happen, we _need_ some people to set up their boxes

one we already have).

It's just that it would force *many* more people to do this.
IMO it's ok to require 2.4.4 for windows, since
-with 2.4.3 there are some linking problems which lead to crashes
-there is only a very limited number of windows developers
