Right, but does it provide honest protection against starting two
postmasters in the same data directory? Or more to the point,
does it prevent starting a new postmaster when the old postmaster
crashed but there are still orphaned backends making changes?
AFAIR we basically punted on those problems for the Windows port,
for lack of an equivalent to nattch.
