Dan did it, yes.  But again, extinct Windows systems contribute
exactly zero #ifdefs.

I don't ignore these costs.  I cannot speak for Richard, but I don't
think he ignores them, either.

I do think that the costs are not too significant, especially since
most of the Windows-specific code is in separate source files.  There
are currently 188 #ifdefs specific to Windows in non-Windows sources
of Emacs; for comparison, there are 112 "#ifdef HAVE_X_WINDOWS" and
100 "#ifdef HAVE_NS".
