Improve wall-time execution speed on Windows

The attached patch improves execution speed under Windows, by sprinkled usage
of the Win32 API. The patch is against the Git repository master branch.

When compiled with MSYS or Cygwin, this patch massively improves on total wall
time of the synchronization. By utilizing the Win32 API, I was able to bypass
lots of POSIX-to-Win32 translations occurring coupled with reusing given
stat()-equivalent data returned during the file-system directory walks.

Comments, suggestions, ideas are welcomed!
