Ah, one thing we have done is to reference everything as pg* and define
it to be the libc function on unix and give a compatibility function on
Win32. We do that with pgpipe. That might be our best solution.
Personally I never liked defining _away_ from libc function names
(rename -> pgrename), but I think defining _to_ libc names is fine.
Let me fix this tomorrow. I always felt we had too many tricks in
adding these functions and was never sure we had it consistent.
