Not possible because Coda uses the POSIX interfaces, or as closely as we
can get it. For native Win32 you'd need to either wrap Win32 calls into
equivalent POSIX system calls, which is exactly what cygwin is doing.

Or completely rewrite Coda to use the Win32 API, which is unusable on
all the other platforms that Coda supports and where main development
takes place, so the native Windows port would have a hard time keeping
track of changes and fixes in the main tree and be continuously
