Good question (the Win32/EXEC_BACKEND case is #def'd out to issue an
altogether unhelpful abort(), so I know it is there).

The only things I've thought of so far are:
a) sticking the PID/cancel key list in shared mem [yeech]
b) rearranging the entire cancel handling to occur in the postmaster [double
yeech]

Any better ideas?
