Doesn't look like that in actual testing. Loading threaded AI fails.

Tue Jul 15 02:39:52 2014, original submission:

I think we could add threaded AI to Windows Installer builds in 2.6. Attached patch is still untested to confirm the fact, but I've seen Installer builds to use pthread implementation instead of windows threads for metaserver communication already, so the support should be sufficient for threaded AI.

- As classic AI still remains the default, just the availability of the threaded AI should not break anything (in fact, getting it to use is somewhat involved process at the moment, so it won't cause any problems by getting used by accident)
- It should not take up too much resources when dormant (this could be still improved so that while it's built in to the binary, server could still be started so that it's not included to the list of AI types at all)
- With the changes I have in pipe already, it does differ from classic AI enough to be considered more than redundant copy
