Are we actually supporting NT4? I recall quite a bit of discussion long
ago about which versions of Windows were really reasonable to support,
but I don't recall if there was a definite outcome.
"Can't run Postgres securely" would be a more-than-sufficient reason
not to support NT4, IMHO.

See above. I don't want PG to become the next virus vector.
