No disagreement there. However, considering that no-one is actively
working on the Windows port right now, and that READ-CHAR-NO-HANG has
AFAIK always behaved like this on SBCL/Windows, I think the practical
solution is to work around it.

(If someone is knowledgeable about Windows, I would be more than happy
to point them to the relevant bits in SBCL code, and merge any fix
they come up with, though.)
