The issue isn't whether or not there is a way known somewhere in the universe to do something, it's whether or not it's reasonable to assume that such a thing is likely to be available. In general we have tried not to assume very much at all about what's available on Windows - not much beyond the simple cmd.exe shell.

On Windows I typically use scp to copy things around between machines, but I'd be very wary of creating a Postgres utility that expects it to be present.
