Hello,

Microsoft just decided to make Services for Unix a free download.  The
package includes a lot of features to make a win32 computer more usable
in a mixed network.   It also includes posix libraries, shells, even gcc
in a unix-ish build environment similar to cygwin (they call it
'Interix'). 

Perhaps with this new development it might be worthwhile investigating
getting postgres compiled using this build environment.  This might be a
way to shortcut the win32 porting effort and keep the win32 specific
code in postgres down to an absolute minimum.

Merlin
