 It is not so much winsock, but terminal handling. Windows and mingw/msys
 does not support termios, thus no readline or linenoise. And reverting to
 fgets() feels a bit primitive. However, the newer mingw-w64/msys2 has a
 port of readline which is also used by gdb et al. So going with msys2
 would make the porting easier as only the winsock needs to be addressed
