When the IPC stuff is exported, they'll check (somehow) that cygserver is
running. If it is, they'll hand off control to the parent interface (class) or
fall back to returning ENOSYS . So, the symbols will be there but they will only
work if cygserver is running.

As this is what we have with cygipc I don't see much difference.
