I'd appreciate it if the current argv code was reverted ASAP.  We can't
use the cygwin argv stuff in setup.exe.

I notice that mingw has something called __argv.  I wonder if that
contains what I think it does.

MSVC also has some sort of argv parser.  I thought that it might be in
msvcrt.dll but I don't know for sure.
