I think this is probably a net loss, because what it will mean is that
you cannot take a data directory built under a Cygwin postmaster and use
it under a native postmaster, nor vice versa.  Given the number of other
ways in which we do not support pre-NT4 Windows systems, what is the
benefit of allowing this one?
