I recall wanting to drop it too.  Wasn't the argument about whether the
libpq.dll we produce would work nicely in a VC++ project?  If it does,
then I'm willing to push the problem off to the pgFoundry project.

(Of course that would be a change for 8.2, not something we should drop
in existing branches.)
