4.3.0 status update

Once I make an official release of the multi-monitor patch I can submit 
both the multi-window and multi-monitor patches.

There were also some cross-compiling build warnings that I had written 
in about, but no one had commented on.  I will see if I can dig them up 

Basically, we need to get things in before Jan 17, right?  After that it 
means that we will have two distinctly different versions in the 
branches, right?  That has always been a pain in the past.
