I can at least say that the Cygwin implements a full POSIX facade in 
front of Windows sockets, so it would be important that the code in 
question is used to protect it as well. Also, MS_WINDOWS is not defined 
for a Cygwin compile, so it is fine to be using that. But I realize 
there is a whole 'nother discussion about that.
