Using 'ctypes.wintypes' on non-Windows systems is most likely a bad idea.  Most of the types are defined in terms of the types for the target that the interpreter is built for.  Comparing serializations thereof in a cross platform manner doesn't make sense for a lot of cases.  

I really think it is only useful for Windows platforms and allowing it to silently import is misleading.
