This error is nearly identical to
<>.  That time, it was
FSDirHandle.c; this time, it is FSFileHandle.c.

The problem is that among the zillion symbols exported by windows.h are INCREF
and DECREF, which conflict with Lucy's versions of same.

Implicit symbol imports suck.  :(

The solution is going to be the same as the one applied in FSDirHandle: swap
out INCREF and DECREF for LUCY_INCREF and LUCY_DECREF.  I'll open an issue.
