A quick search told me that "Windows only knows the SO_REUSEADDR option, there is no SO_REUSEPORT". It should be at least documented that SO_REUSEADDR is not supported on Windows.

Maybe we should raise an exception on Windows if reuse_port=True? Ignoring the parameter is a different option, but it should be well documented that the option is ignored if socket.SO_REUSEPORT is not defined.
