Attached is a proposed Gnulib patch to fix some occurrences of
the "win" terminology problem.

It mostly just substitutes "Woe32" for "Win32", except that for
"Win32 API" it substitutes "Windows API".  The Microsoft overview of the API
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa383723.aspx> says,
"Note that this was formerly called the Win32 API. The name
Windows API more accurately reflects its roots in 16-bit Windows
and its support on 64-bit Windows."
