I think these two justify declaring the Windows port at EOL prior to 
8.2. The others probably not so much. (Who cares if pg_regress is not a 
C program? Who besides developers uses it?)

I hope this will be a one-off exercise, though. In general we should 
declare releases to be at EOL, not ports.

cheers
