AIUI, this affects only 'test_coding_rules' directly, and
therefore 'hooks/pre-commit' indirectly. The solution is
to withdraw msw support for those things. Kim and I never
commit on any platform other than pc-linux-gnu; neither
do we ever need to run 'test_coding_rules.exe'. Instead,
let's provide only an ELF 'test_coding_rules', and expunge
the corresponding msw binary utterly and forever.
