We don't delay-load anything, so we'd see the failure when initdb
calls find_other_exec to validate the version of postgres.exe. That
would fail, and initdb would abort. Besides - Windows always spits out
DLL not found messages in a message box for some annoying reason.

I was wondering if there are limitations or incompatibilities in the
ipc apis for example.
