Well, you could copy postgres.exe to postmaster.exe during install, so
I don't think you ever did need to bloat the distribution, only the
install footprint.  The question here is whether you're ready to break
existing custom scripts for starting the postmaster.  Maybe there are
none such in the wild on Windows, but I'd be hesitant to assume that.
