We do want to comb out essential libio dependencies.  The goal is
to be able to use libio when it is present, but work without it when
it is not.

Probably not.

This is the place.

We may find it hard to incorporate portability patches at this
stage, but they will certainly become interesting later.  Those
that we can test and run without running Cygwin32 are interesting 
now.  Those that introduce what we must for now consider "dead code"
might have to wait, because they are subject to code rot.
