You can open a file called NUL on Windows to get the same effect as /dev/null 
on POSIX type platforms.

Unlike on POSIX, NUL is just a special-cased file name, not the name of an 
actual device, so it’s possible to get around it with NTFS file path trickery:


That’s no concern here, since the Fossil code will likely just say "NUL".
