This is the very sort of thing that Cygwin was made for: using standard
POSIX code under Windows. In many cases, code can be compiled with no
changes at all. The end result is that you will have a bit of extra overhead
and a dependency on Cygwin, in exchange for very little programming effort,
and benefit from future improvements to the original library.
