I think this is OK. I had originally envisioned just having a separate
"#ifdef WIN32" and not really sharing code at all with /dev/tty because
I was worried that the conditionals would end up making it hard to read.
This is a little more complex than I would have liked, but I do not see
how the code sharing could be simplified any more than what you have
done, and it is nice to avoid repeating ourselves.
