listen also doesn't have such an implementation and probably few others.

Not sure, but I could see that bind and listen doesn't have the equivalent
Win sock API (checked in winsock2.h) and while googling on same,
I found that there are reasons [1] why Win Sockets doesn't have the
equivalent of some of the socket API's.

I think here we should add a win32 wrapper over bind and listen
API's which ensures TranslateSocketError() should be called for
error cases.
