No, those changes are obsolete now that bug #907 is resolved (system()
problems on Windows).

The latest fixes have been waiting in my branch, as mentioned on the
rake-devel list.  The reported bug (#1010) no longer applies to 1.9,
while it is incidentally fixed in 1.8 due to my system() workarounds
for Windows.

I did not receive a response to my question on whether bug #907 will
be backported http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/907.

On the rake-devel list I asked if Rake should to fix the system()
problems in 1.8, but there was no response.

Therefore my latest changes assume 
(1) bug #907 will not be backported, and
(2) Jim wants Rake's sh to fix the system() problems in 1.8.

If (1) and (2), pull http://github.com/quix/rake/tree/mainline-rake

If (1) and not (2), follow the change described in this bug (#1010).

If not (1), we need to know which ruby version will have the backport
of #907.
