That was what we'd always assumed, but the fact that postgres_fdw has been
working for the last year (on everything except narwhal) puts the lie to
that as a blanket assumption.

So what I want to know now is how come it wasn't failing; because then
we might be able to exploit that to eliminate the need for the PGDLLIMPORT
cruft everywhere.  I've never been a fan of the fact that Windows insists
on its own private set of global symbol visibility rules.  If we can make
that build work more like other platforms, it'll be a step forward IMO.
