Not unreasonable. Maybe someone who uses/distributes a commercial 
Windows version can inform us about usage patterns. If that's what we 
decide we should remove this from the Win32 page:

. Create C version of pg_ctl?

And while on the subject of that page, this issue should now be fixed 
with the listen_addresses patch (which I hope someone can verify):

Postmaster must be started with -i flag, or with tcpip_socket = true in 
postgresql.conf, else the postmaster will fail to start and issue the 
following error:
|LOG: select() failed in postmaster: No such file or directory
