The `argument' I have for removing the _WIN32 from cygwin32 (I'll live
with mingw32) is that there exists code that already has some porting
to WIN32 and it gets in the way of wanting to build the __UNIX__
version under WIN32.  Since this is the goal of the Cygnus Project
then it would be best served to remove the definitions of _WIN32.
