IIRC, Jason Tishler was working on one awhile back. Check the mailing
As far as the general topic goes: this has come up several times before,
and the conclusion has always been that a native Windows port would
require effort (both initial, and ongoing maintenance) vastly out of
proportion to the reward.
But it occurs to me that it might be useful to provide a downloadable
package that includes both the Postgres server and as much of Cygwin
as you need to run it, all wrapped up in a nice friendly installer.
