I think the equivalent size on Windows should be between 16 and 64KB
(AFAIK, the recent versions of Windows increased it to the latter
value).  But as we are talking about 'fwrite', isn't a more important
value the buffer size of the FILE stream object?  That one is usually
something like 4KB, I think.
