I'm not actually trying to turn this into a political football.  What
I want is a solution that we can trust, ie, that will allow us to
ship Windows code that's not broken.  We have failed to do so for at
least the past year, and not even known it.

I had been okay with the manual PGDLLIMPORT-sprinkling approach
(not happy with it, of course, but prepared to tolerate it) as long
as I believed the buildfarm would reliably tell us of the need for
it.  That assumption has now been conclusively disproven, though.
The question therefore becomes, what are we going to do instead?
"Keep on doing what we were doing" doesn't strike me as an acceptable
