No SMP Erlang for Windows?

I was trying to enable SMP on my Windows Erlang install, but I was shocked to find out that SMP is not supported in the official Windows Erlang distribution.

I confirmed this by reading the Errata for Programming Erlang:

#8893: "SMP Erlang has been enabled ... since R11B-0 on all platforms where SMP Erlang is known to work."
PLEASE mention that Windows is NOT among them.

What the heck? That seems like a horrible little secret of the Erlang world. I don't want to compile my own Erlang on windows just to get SMP (which, imo, is the killer feature of erlang).
