What exactly do you want me to replace? There's nothing even remotely
similar to getcwd() on WinCE. I can pretend and write a dummy getcwd()
for WinCE that returns a constant, but that seems to me semantically
very broken. Maybe you would prefer a HAVE_GETCWD macro that skips this

Do you suggest that ifdefs used to work around missing POSIX functions
(especially on broken platforms like WinCE which cause a lot of them)
should be replaced by wrappers in compat/ ? If so I understand, but this
one doesn't really qualify since the whole functionality is just
unavailable, and cannot be reimplemented.
