couchspawnkillable doesn't work on windows

                 Key: COUCHDB-374
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
         Environment: windows
            Reporter: Mark Hammond
         Attachments: couchspawnkillable_win.c

The shell script 'couchspawnkillable' doesn't work on windows, meaning lots of things are
broken in the trunk.  It might be possible to bash cygwin/msys etc to work, but I think a
better solution for windows is a custom little C app which does the same basic thing.

I've attached the source for such an app and it works for me.  It creates a suspended child
process with the same handles as us, then echos the 'kill' command, then spawns the real app
and terminates.  The 'kill command' is a reference to the same couchspawnkillable.exe but
with a '--kill' command-line.  I've not tried to integrate with a build system, but simple
instructions are at the top of the file.

Attaching it here so it doesn't get lost...
