You're referring to the suggestion of accepting and ignoring the option on
non-Windows, right? I can do that, I just don't see the point as long as
pg_ctl has a separate code path (well, #ifdef) for Windows anyway.

Ah. More good news. Just to confirm, this is only about the tests, right,
not the code they are testing?
If so, is there even a way to run either on Windows? The pg_upgrade test
suite is a shell script, and prove_check is defined in Makefile.global and
definitely not applicable to Windows.
