Probably a better idea is to fix things so that can't-send-yet results
in returning PGRES_POLLING_WRITING rather than a failure.  That would
result in a busy-wait in this scenario on Windows, which is arguably
better than blocking.  It would also make this part of libpq more robust
against applications being sloppy about socket readiness checks (which,
you could argue, is exactly what libpqwalreceiver is being).  But it
would be a somewhat ticklish change because of the portability hazards,
so I'm really disinclined to do it this late in beta.
