Do you have an old build setup anywhere? It would be really nice to  
be able to finish off a 3.8b4 (ie pre 64 bit work) vmmaker/build  
world and be able to point newcomer vm builders to it as  stable  
starting point. I *think* all it really needs is that getImageName()  
and some testing.

The later 3.8b6 would be better thought of as a staring point for the  
3.9 vm and sometime I want to get your win32 subclass change etc
