Sure, like I said, my 2c. Just looks a little out of place. Understand point on API, but think it is clear that this isn't a win32 replacement for pgstat_beterm, but a win32 replacement for pgstat_beterm *called from a signal handler* (perhaps a function name change would make it this clearer). In any case, not fussed. What I am wondering about now, is where else we need to change? AFAICS, there is (at least?) one signal handler that performs sockets ops, namely Async_NotifyHandler.
