Can some one very knowledgeable with socket programming (hopefully on
many platforms) please help us out?  Should socket clients (e.g., psql)
be expected to test errno for EWOULDBLOCK (a.k.a EAGAIN) when connect()
returns -1?  Or, should cygwin map EWOULDBLOCK to EINPROGRESS, at least
for connect()?
