Dunno, I just hit reply to all.

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.  :-)
