OK, a little more research; NT4 with SP4 can read and write NTFS5
volumes. It *cannot* use many of the other NTFS5 features, including
reparse points which Andreas needed to implement symlinks.
further analyis). Therefore, attempts to create tablespaces will
probably cause a crash.
In addition, the installer uses CreateProcessWithLogonW() to run initdb
at the service user. This API is not available on NT4, and although
there are others that *should* do the same job, Magnus failed could get
them to work despite us both trying to figure it out for some time. As
99.99% of Windows users will use the installer, I think this is perhaps
the most important reason to say that NT4 is in the 'at your own risk'
