Yep, don't worry, that's not being proposed. Even Jan's original patch
limited the windows.h inclusion to mingw. If a gnulib header ends up
pulling windows.h on Cygwin, that'd be a gnulib bug. I think the chances
of that happening without the gnulib folks noticing are quite low
But the best way to make sure is to test the users/palves/gnulib-update branch. :-)
