"Harmless" in what sense?  Should they do nothing at all?  Probably
not, or else you wouldn't be loading them, right?

Even in your specific use-case, did you want the w32-fns functions to
end up in the obarray or not?

IOW, can you come up with a general enough definition of the reason(s)
for loading w32-fns on non-w32 systems?  Without such a definition, I
don't see how can we do anything except making the entire file be
ignored on any system but w32.
