Well, we should *at least* provide it from the source build. Since it
does work (with a small kludge, but it does work).
Me, I'm not fully happy with psql on win32. I want my tab completion!
(which the gui tools don't do either, from what I can tell. At least
pgadmin doesn't. Yet.)

If we only allow it from build-from-source, it's no different from any
other platform, license-wise.
