Unless the 'postmaster' instance starts all it's sub processes with an
additional option to tell them they're children (I haven't looked at the
code yet so I dunno if this is how it's done).

For those that are unaware, because Windows doesn't support symlinks, we
currently ship two copies of the binary. We could save 3.2MB
(uncompressed, 8.1.4) if we could lose one of them.
